Van Oord’s cable-laying vessel Nexus has started the installation of cables at Ørsted’s offshore wind farm Borkum Riffgrund 2, in the German North Sea.

A total of 110 kilometers of cable will be laid in the wind farm to later connect the 56 wind turbines with the offshore substation.

Furthermore, a cable will be laid to the nearby Borkum Riffgrund 1 wind farm, also owned by Ørsted.

The installation work is expected to be completed in July. The connection to the converter platform DolWin3 will follow about one month later, the company noted.

The cables for Borkum Riffgrund 2 were manufactured by Nexans in Hanover.

After construction is completed, Borkum Riffgrund 2 will have an export capacity of around 450 megawatts and will be able to supply green electricity for the equivalent of around 460,000 German households.

Full commissioning of the offshore wind farm is planned for 2019.
