Hellenic Cables, the leading provider of turnkey cable solutions for the wind industry, celebrates the successful completion of Elia’s new modular offshore grid (MOG). The Belgian transmission system operator officially inaugurated the project in a ceremony attended by King Philippe of Belgium.
The platform, located 40 km off the coast, is linked to the mainland through two 220 kV submarine cables provided by Hellenic Cables. In total, 91 km of 220 kV submarine cables were designed, manufactured and tested at Hellenic Cables’ integrated, submarine cables plant in Corinth, Greece. In addition, Hellenic Cables provided the sea joints, transition joints between submarine and land cables, cabling and terminations on MOG platform as well as on-site assembly works, acceptance testing upon completion of installation works and commissioning.
Mr. Alexios Alexiou, Hellenic Cables’ General Manager, stated: “The MOG project marks our first and very successful collaboration with the Belgian TSO, Elia. As a company partly headquartered in Belgium through our parent company Cenergy Holdings SA, we are proud to contribute to the country’s environmental and sustainability targets with a project that helps harness Belgium’s enormous offshore wind potential. Further, the successful execution of MOG is testament to our commitment to competitive and high-quality solutions for the offshore wind industry globally”.
As further proof of Hellenic Cables’ strong commitment to support the growing offshore wind market, the Company is currently expanding its inter-array cables production capacity in its Corinth plant to supply a wide range of cables to offshore wind developers worldwide.
