Wind energy – power cables
NKT has commissioned the power cable project comprising three 220 kV HVAC power cable systems for the Moray East Offshore Wind Farm located 22 kilometres off the north-east coast of Scotland.
The wind farm holds a central position in the transition to renewable energy in Scotland and when it is complete it will be capable of meeting the average electricity needs of 40% of Scottish households.
The project confirms the strong position of NKT being a key supplier for the offshore wind industry in the UK.
The power cables were manufactured at the NKT factory in Karlskrona, Sweden, which runs on 100% green electricity minimizing the carbon footprint of the cable system. As part of the environmental focus of the operation, the installation of the submarine power cable systems was completed by NKT Victoria.
