Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke has been commissioned by Van Oord to design, produce and deliver 45 km of medium-voltage submarine power cables for the Inter Array cabling of the Deutsche Bucht wind park.
Delivery of the submarine cables is scheduled for spring 2019. Van Oord will use a specialised vessel to install them.
The Deutsche Bucht offshore wind farm is located in the North Sea, approx. 95 km north-west of the island of Borkum. It comprises 31 MHI Vestas Offshore Wind 164-8.0MW (8.4MW Power Mode) turbines, which will generate a total output of 252 MW. Upon its planned completion in late 2019, the wind park will provide renewable energy to more than 178,000 households.
