Wind Energy – Array Cables
Hellenic Cables has been awarded the Dogger Bank C array cable contract by DEME Offshore.
Already the designated cables’ supplier for Dogger Bank A and B, Hellenic Cables becomes with this contract the sole inter-array cables’ supplier for the world’s largest offshore wind farm.
Located more than 130 km off the North East Coast, Dogger Bank Wind Farm is being developed in three phases – Dogger Bank A, B, and C – and each phase will have an installed generation capacity of up to 1.2 GW.
Combined, the 3.6 GW project will be capable of powering up to 6 million homes contributing substantially to UK’s and Europe’s goal for net zero carbon emissions.
Under the new contract, Hellenic Cables will design, manufacture, test, and supply approx. 240 km of 66 kV XLPE-insulated inter-array cables and associated accessories. This is in addition to the 650 km of array cables already awarded for phases A & B.
The cables will be produced at Hellenic Cables’ vertically integrated, state-of-the-art submarine cables plant in Corinth, Greece. Production of the cables for Dogger Bank C is set to begin in 2023 and delivery will be a phased roll out in line with the project execution program.
“Over the past years, DEME Offshore and Hellenic Cables have been successfully delivering large-scale cable projects together. We very much look forward to partnering each other again and leveraging our joint expertise to deliver this major project,” said Bart De Poorter, General Manager DEME Offshore.
