Prysmian has been awarded a new contract by Ørsted Wind Power to supply submarine inter-array cables for Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm.

Hornsea Project Two, located 89 km off the Yorkshire coast, will be able to supply well over 1.3 million homes with green, renewable electricity once it becomes operational in 2022.

Prysmian Group will be responsible for the design, manufacture, supply, termination and testing of the inter–array submarine cables system that will connect 110 of the 165 wind turbines and the offshore substation platform.

The project involves more than 300 km of 66 kV inter-array cables with EPR insulation and single wire armouring systems plus all related accessories.

All the submarine cable cores will be produced at the Group’s centre of excellence located in Wrexham, Wales, UK, while the armouring and assembling process will be performed in Drammen, Norway.

The cables are due to be delivered in 2021.
