French company Bardot Group has been awarded by Nexans the supply of buoyancy modules for the power cables of Hywind floating wind farm in Scotland.

The 30 MW floating wind farm, located 30km off the coast of Peterhead, will be operated by Norwegian oil and gas company Statoil.

The project is expected to provide electricity to 20,000 homes, and will consist of five wind turbine generators connected through a cable network.

The energy produced by the turbines will then be carried back to land by a single export cable. The cabling has been awarded to Nexans, who has chosen Bardot Group to equip its dynamic cables with buoyancy modules.

As Bardot informed, the contract consists of the procurement of several hundreds of buoyancy modules, each providing around 400 kg of buoyancy and rated for 120 m of water depth.

The buoyancy modules integrate Bardot’s in-house DeepFloat syntactic foam technology, and will provide flotation assistance in the dynamic sections of the power cables.

The buoyancy modules are planned to be delivered onsite in May 2017.
