NKT has entered a Preferred Supplier Agreement (PSA) as main contractor for delivery and installation of high-voltage DC on- and offshore export cable systems to the Dogger Bank Wind Farms Creyke Beck A and Creyke Beck B site.
Now, with an agreement of a EPCI (Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation) contract with project owners Equinor and SSE Renewables, NKT confirms the order, which is the largest XLPE power cables order ever for the company, and has added the project to its the high-voltage order backlog.
As previously announced, the order represents a contract value of approx. EUR 360m (approx. DKK 2,685m) in market prices, equivalent to approx. EUR 300m (approx.
DKK 2,235m) in standard metal prices. The cable systems comprise the manufacture of approx. 4×175 km of 320 kV DC offshore export power cables and approx. 4×32 km of
320 kV DC onshore export power cables as well as installation by the cable-laying vessel NKT Victoria. NKT expects production-start of the power cables in 2020.
The Dogger Bank Creyke Beck A/B offshore wind farms will provide green energy supply to an estimated 3 million households in the UK.
According to the Routekaart 2030 the Dutch government will develop an additional 7 GW of wind energy areas until 2030. [Read more…] about Information for cable suppliers 525 kV HVDC XLPE
JDR Cable Systems has signed a contract with Equinor for the Hywind Tampen pioneering project.
JDR is designing and manufacturing eleven 66kV dynamic inter-array cables and two static export cables, each equipped with a JDR designed breakaway system and a range of cable accessories for delivery in 2022.
The project will be the first worldwide to power oil and gas platforms using floating offshore wind – a far more technically challenging and less mature technology than traditional fixed-foundation offshore wind. Cables pose a particular challenge due to the high dynamic stress they must withstand, however JDR has already established itself as a leader in this fledgling sub-sector, delivering the world’s first application of dynamic 66kV technology and breakaway system to the Windfloat Atlantic floating wind farm last year.
The Hywind Tampen project will consist of 11 wind turbines developed by Equinor. The 8 MW turbines will have a total capacity of 88 MW, capable of meeting about 35 per cent of the annual power demand of the five Snorre A and B, Gullfaks A, B and C oil and gas platforms. The floating wind project is in water depths of 300 metres, much deeper than any previous floating wind project and is the first ever to power oil and gas platforms.
The 2.5 km long 66kV dynamic array cables will connect to the eleven turbines in a loop and the two static 12.9km and 16km export cables will be used to connect the loop to the Snorre A and Gullfaks A platforms. The greater water depth means the cable accessories will be specially designed to withstand higher water pressures.
