Enabling a greener energy consumption
Our high voltage alternating current (HVAC) offshore cables support integration of renewable power to the existing grid as well as provide a grid extension to “single-points”, such as offshore wind, or oil and gas installations.
Extruded HVAC cables are insulated with cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) and manufactured in a triple extrusion process, where semiconducting layers and the insulation layer are extruded in one step. XLPE features low relative permittivity, a very low power loss factor and high dielectric strength.
To feed the wind energy generated on the high seas into the grid systems on land, we design, produce and install high voltage submarine cables for all required voltage levels. With great focus on continuous, extra-long production lengths and the availability of a full range of cable accessories, we provide the very best project-specific solutions for cable systems and offshore installations.
Our high-performance submarine cables, connect wind turbines to the offshore platform and ensure efficient and low-loss energy transmission within the offshore wind park. Our infield cables are type-tested up to 66 kV in accordance with international recommendations. They can be coiled, providing optimum flexibility and cost-effectiveness for logistics and storage.
