nkt cables to Deliver Submarine Cables for Gemini OWF

As announced previously, nkt cables is involved in the offshore wind farm project “Gemini” developed by Typhoon Offshore B.V. and owned by a consortium of investors. The consortium has now confirmed that the project has reached financial close.

With this, nkt cables has now received a binding order worth approximately 165 mil. EUR for the delivery of more than 200 kilometers of 220 kV high voltage submarine cables and related accessories, all to be manufactured in Cologne, Germany. The cables are to be delivered ready for installation starting early 2015 to the EPC contractor for the Gemini project, Van Oord.

Additionally, nkt cables received the order for supply of the land cable portion of this project, consisting of 5 km of 380 kV cables and around 30 km of 220 kV, to complete the windfarms’ connection to the Dutch onshore high voltage grid. Project Gemini consists of the Buitengaats and ZeeEnergie wind farms to be situated in the Dutch zone of the North Sea, 55 kilometers north-east of the island of Schiermonnikoog, and will have a capacity of 600 MW. With 150 turbines, the wind farms will produce electricity for more than 1.5 million inhabitants.

Gemini represents nkt cables’ 10th offshore wind farm project since 2010 when the submarine cable factory in Cologne first started the production of submarine cables.
