The NKT turnkey project included project management, planning, manufacturing, cable-laying, installation and testing of the cable system. We truly fulfilled all requirements when it came to flexibility, cutting-edge technology and the ability to deliver customised solutions.
To this project, we supplied both submarine and underground high-voltage cable systems and provided high-voltage terminations and straight joints.
We manufactured the cable for each section in individual production lengths in our state-of-theart f2c factory in Cologne. After the final quality assurance at the factory, the cables were delivered on time by pontoon to Cork. During the cable-laying, the sections were buried in the seabed at a depth of 1 to 2 metres with the aid of a jetting system. The final testing and successful commissioning of the cable circuits were completed as scheduled in July 2011.
At NKT, we are proud to say that we contributed in the most effective manner to this highly efficient power transmission link. The recipe for success was, once again, our customer-oriented approach and our capability to handle and manage very demanding and versatile assignments.
