Hellenic Cables has finalised the individual contracts with Ørsted and Eversource for two offshore wind projects in the United States.
Under these contracts, Hellenic Cables will design, manufacture, test and supply approx. 260 km of 66 kV XLPE-insulated subsea inter-array cables and associated accessories for South Fork Wind and Revolution Wind in the Northeast U.S. Production will be phased through 2024 according to each individual project’s delivery plan.
Ørsted and Eversource are developing these projects that, upon completion, will generate approximately 830 MW of clean energy, enough to power more than 420,000 homes. These offshore wind farms will make meaningful progress toward achieving state clean energy goals.
Alexis Alexiou, CEO of Hellenic Cables and Cenergy Holdings, commented: “This long-term partnership with Ørsted and Eversource is proof of Hellenic Cables’ commitment to the US offshore wind industry as a core part of our business and our strategy for the future. We are proud to work with industry leaders on flagship projects that are transformational for the nation’s energy sector as a whole.”
Hellenic Cables reaffirms its leading role in developing infrastructure critical to the energy transition in the U.S. and globally. Hellenic Cables’ track record in the United States offshore wind sector includes Mayflower Wind in Massachusetts and Dominion’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind, both for supplying 66 kV array cables.
