Wind Energy – Export Cable Hornsea 3
NKT has been awarded a supply contract for the delivery of the high-voltage DC on- and offshore export cable system to the Hornsea 3 project which is being developed by Ørsted.
The contract will comprise the design, manufacturing, jointing and termination of the export power cable system for Hornsea 3 which will include two circuits with a route length of approx.170 km 320 kV DC offshore cable, 50 km 320 kV DC onshore cable as well as four circuits for 1.5 km route of 400 kV AC onshore cable. The DC system will connect the wind turbines with the substation while the AC cables will connect the substation to the national grid.
