Hellenic Cables has been awarded by Vattenfall, the design, manufacturing, testing, and supply of approximately 70 km 66kV XLPE insulated inter-array cables and associated accessories for Vesterhav Nord / Syd offshore wind farm project.
The Vesterhav project consists of two wind farms Vesterhav Nord and Vesterhav Syd. The sites will have a total capacity of 350 MW and will produce climate-friendly electricity, equivalent to the annual consumption of 380,000 Danish households. The two wind farms will increase the Danish electricity generation from wind energy, making a significant contribution to the country’s green transition.
The cables will be manufactured at Hellenic Cables’ vertically integrated state-of-the-art submarine cable production facility in Corinth, Greece. Production of the cables for both Vesterhav Nord and Vesterhav Syd will commence in summer 2022 and their delivery will take place in the first quarter of 2023.
Ms. Mathilde Lindhardt Damsgaard, Vattenfall Project Director for Vesterhav Project, commented “Vattenfall is extremely pleased to be supported by Hellenic Cables for the manufacturing of inter-array cables for the Vesterhav projects. We look forward to a collaborative working relationship with Hellenic Cables, to ensure safe and successful delivery of this supply scope in quality and time. This award is also significant in that it marks the first contract between Vattenfall and Hellenic Cables. We hope this project will form a good basis for extending the cooperation to future tenders and projects, expanding our supplier base so that we can work together to achieve Vattenfall’s ambition of making fossil-free living possible within one generation.”
Mr. Alexis Alexiou, CEO of Cenergy Holdings and Hellenic Cables commented: “We are so proud that Vattenfall gives us the opportunity to be part of its vision for a fossil-free living within one generation. This assignment confirms once again that we are a leading European cable provider enabling the transition to a sustainable energy system in a reliable way.”
