NKT has finalized the commissioning of the high-voltage cable systems for the 659 MW offshore wind park Walney Extension in the Irish Sea.

The NKT delivery comprised more than 139 km of submarine cable.

NKT has designed, manufactured and commissioned the two 220kV extruded export cable systems as well as an underground cable system connecting the wind farm to the onshore power grid.

All 220kV joints and terminations were also supplied and installed by NKT, the company noted.

We are proud to be part of the ambitious project generating renewable energy in UK and we have seen great collaboration with Ørsted and other suppliers to the Walney Extension. In NKT, we are committed to the sustainable development of the global energy production, and this project reinforces our position as a leading provider of advanced high-voltage cable solutions connecting offshore wind parks to the power grid,” said Andreas Berthou, executive vice president, who is responsible for high-voltage cable solutions in NKT.
