Nexans’ Cables for Arkona Offshore Wind Farm

Nexans Deutschland’s Hanover plant will supply 76 kilometers of energy cables to E.ON for the Arkona offshore wind farm, the company informed.

The submarine cables are designed for operation at 33 kV and will serve as the internal cabling for the nearly 385 MW wind farm, which is due to be built between the Baltic Sea islands of Rügen and Bornholm.

Arkona offshore wind farm is expected to generate electricity for around 400,000 households from 2019.

The order includes 48 kilometers of three-phase cables with a 300 mm² cross-section and 28 kilometers of cables with an 800 mm² cross-section, along with the fittings and accessories needed for the installation. Delivery is scheduled for the beginning of 2018.

The cables will connect the 60 wind turbines to each other and to the transformer platform. According to Nexans, the 33 kV submarine cables with a large 800 mm² cross-section will be used at Arkona for the first time.

E.ON will have responsibility for building and operating the wind farm. The energy company Statoil will have a 50-percent stake and be involved in the project from the start.
