UK: NSW to Supply Submarine Array Cables for Humber Gateway Offshore Wind Farm

Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke GmbH (NSW), a subsidiary of General Cable Corporation, has been awarded a contract by E.ON to supply 82km of medium-voltage submarine array cables for its Humber Gateway offshore wind farm. Delivery of cables is scheduled for 2013.

Thorsten Schwarz, Managing Director NSW: “We’re proud of having been chosen by E.ON as the cable supplier for this project. In the last months we’ve continued to expand our subsea cable production facilities based on the expectations that offshore wind will take on the expected importance in the future European electricity generation mix. It is good to see that investors like E.ON continue to prove their commitment to offshore wind by investing in projects here in UK, as well as Sweden and Germany.”

The Humber Gateway offshore wind farm will be located 8km off the East Yorkshire coast, north of the mouth of the river Humber. The wind farm will consist of 73 turbines which will generate up to 219MW. Once complete, the wind farm will be capable of generating enough electricity to power up to 170,000 UK homes.
