ABB, Prysmian to Supply Cables for Horns Rev 3 Offshore Wind Farm has signed contracts with ABB and Prysmian for the supply of 220kV high-voltage cables to transport power from the Horns Rev3 offshore wind farm in the North Sea into the Danish electricity grid.

ABB will supply the 33 km long submarine cable for the connection of the wind turbines to the coast at Blåbjerg, while Prysmian will provide onshore cables.

The onshore cable connection, which will bring offshore wind power to’s substation in Endrup, east of Esbjerg, will be either 50 or 60 km in length, depending on the route Nature Agency suggests in the EIA process.

“Until the end of the year, we expect to grant contracts for other major wind farm components, such as transformers and a large platform to be installed at the offshore wind farm, where it will collect power from the turbines,” said Søren Juul Larsen, Project Manager from

The contract for submarine cable is worth $40 million and it includes transport and cable-laying. The contract for onshore cable is worth $15 million and it does not include the cable-burial.
