Nexans to Supply Cables for East Anglia ONE OWF

ScottishPower Renewables has chosen Nexans to supply submarine cables for the 714 MW East Anglia ONE offshore wind farm.

Nexans will supply and install two 85 km 3-core submarine cables with embedded fibre optics, as well as accompanying accessories, for the wind farm in the North Sea.

The contract is worth more than EUR 180 million.

The East Anglia ONE wind farm, due to be finished in 2020, will be made up of 102 wind turbines with a capacity to power around 500,000 homes. The entire project is worth nearly €3 billion.

Nexans will type test, manufacture and install the high voltage cables and accessories at the 300 km2 site. The turnkey contract includes a pre-installation survey and cable protection by burying.

Delivery of the cables will begin in summer 2018, the company said.

Jonathan Cole, managing director of Offshore Wind at ScottishPower Renewables, said: “This is a huge year for the East Anglia ONE project. Preparations are now under way for the initial work onshore, and we are in advanced planning stages for the offshore work, which will kick-off in 2018.”

Vincent Dessale, executive vice president Subsea Energy System Business Line at Nexans, said, “We are looking forward to being part of such an exciting project to develop East Anglia.”

Morten Langnes, sales manager Submarine High Voltage Power Cables at Nexans added, “The East Anglia One project will create thousands of jobs in the region, as well as for suppliers in the UK. We are committed to supporting both sustainable energy and the local economy.”

ScottishPower Renewables is also in the early planning stages for two bigger wind farms in the same region: East Anglia TWO and East Anglia THREE.
