The Hornsea 2 wind farm is developed by Ørsted Wind Power A/S, 89 km off the Yorkshire coast to the east of the UK. It will cover an area of 462 km2, consist of 165 wind turbines and has a capacity of more than 1.3 GW. With the world’s largest offshore power substation, the completed wind farm will provide green and clean electricity to more than 1.3 million households in the UK.
NKT was awarded a contract by Ørsted to supply 196 km of high-voltage cables. The contract also included termination and jointing on the offshore platforms.
Ørsted is one of our long-time customers who value our expertise, know-how and technical solutions. We have, for example, already delivered high voltage cable system to the adjacent Hornsea 1 wind farm that currently is the world´s biggest offshore wind farm. At over 1.3 GW, Hornsea 2 will overtake Hornsea 1 as the number one in the world.
In addition, we were awarded a contract by Boskalis to execute the offshore cable installation in three campaigns.
