Van Oord’s cable-laying vessel Nexus has loaded the final batch of inter-array cables for the Borkum Riffgrund 2 wind farm and is now installing them in the German North Sea.

The expected date of the completion of the works in the field is August 07, 2018, Van Oord’s spokesperson said.

Nexus is deployed to install a total of 110 kilometers of cable to later connect the 56 wind turbines with the offshore substation at the Ørsted’s offshore wind farm.

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.
