OX2 and Ingka Investments enter into a conditional agreement with NKT for delivery and installation of export power cables. NKT’s facility in Karlskrona will deliver the cables for the recently awarded Galene project in Sweden. The agreement also covers the Triton offshore wind farm. The agreement will enable OX2 and Ingka Investments to start realising the projects following grant of final permits.
According to the agreement, NKT will supply up to 210 km of offshore and onshore export cables and install offshore export cables required for the projects Galene and Triton.
“This is the second conditional contract for our offshore projects Galene and Triton in Sweden, which includes both the supply and installation of offshore export cables targeting the use of the installation vessel NKT Victoria. We are incredibly happy to engage with NKT and bring key Swedish manufacturers into our first Swedish offshore projects”, says Emelie Zakrisson, Head of Offshore Wind Development, OX2 Sweden.
“As offshore wind in Sweden sets to take off, we are pleased to be engaging with OX2 and Ingka Investments on their first projects in Sweden with the supply of both off- and onshore export power cables”, says Michael C. Hjorth, Chief Commercial Officer in NKT.
OX2 is developing three offshore wind farms in Sweden together with Ingka Investments: Galene on the west coast, Triton, in the south of Sweden and Aurora, between the islands of Gotland and Öland. The Government of Sweden makes the final approval of the projects, and the projects have the potential to produce more than 30 TWh.
