NKT has been awarded a three-year service agreement contract by the German-Dutch power grid operator TenneT covering the cable jointing part of a larger offshore service agreement.
The contract covers the cable jointing work for seven power cable systems and includes a tailored preparedness plan designed by NKT to ensure minimum downtime in case of damages to the high-voltage power cables, which originally was manufactured by NKT.
“The agreement with TenneT is a milestone for NKT and our ambition to become the preferred service partner in the market. With the agreement, we support TenneT with our experienced jointing technicians, specially designed tools and equipment as well as guaranteed mobilisation time to minimize the potential downtime,” says Oliver Schlodder, executive vice president and head of Applications, Service & Accessories.
In total, the seven TenneT power cable systems covered by the service agreement deliver more than 3,000 MW of power.
