Nexans has completed the installation of the first four cables of NordLink, the power connection between Norway and Germany.

A collaboration between Statnett,  TenneT and the German promotional bank KfW, the 1400 MW NordLink interconnector will connect the Norwegian and German electricity markets to allow the two countries to exchange renewable energy.

In the framework of the EUR 500 million contract awarded to the group in 2015, Nexans is designing, manufacturing and installing six 525 kV mass-impregnated (MI) high voltage direct current (HVDC) interconnector cables with a total length of around 700 km.

While a part of these cables is still being manufactured in Nexans Norway plant in Halden, Nexans has already manufactured and installed two thirds of the interconnection length.

The cables are installed with cable-laying vessel C/S Nexans Skagerrak and trenched using the Nexans Capjet system.

The last two cables are currently being manufactured in Halden and will be installed according to plan in 2019.
