Lillgrund Cable Repairs Underway (Sweden)

Since May 12, the Lillgrund offshore wind farm has been standing still. The work to repair the export cable – which transmits the electricity from the wind farm to the substation on land – is underway.

“Our focus is to replace the damaged section of the cable as soon as possible and get the production up and running again,” says Fredrik Forslund, site manager at Lillgrund. “Yesterday, May 23, we got the green light from the County Administration to begin work to replace the damaged part of the export cable.”

Weather permitting, the plan is to cut and remove the damaged part of the export cable on Monday, May 27. About 75 meters of the 7 kilometer long submarine cable needs to be replaced.

After the cable section is removed from the seabed, it will be analyzed to determine what caused the damage.
