Nexans Adds Northwester 2 to Orderbook

Belgian offshore wind developer Northwester 2 has selected the French cable specialist Nexans to provide an export cable system for the 219MW Northwester 2 offshore wind farm.

In November 2017, Northwester 2, a joint venture between Parkwind and Sumitomo Corporation, issued a tender for the design, manufacture, supply, installation and termination works on a 225 kV 3 phase submarine cable with an approximate length of 17 kilometres.

The Northwester 2 offshore wind farm will comprise 23 MHI Vestas 9.5MW wind turbines and will be connected to Elia’s Modular Offshore Grid (MOG).

Earlier this month, Northwester 2 reached a financial close, securing some EUR 700 million in financing.

The project is scheduled to enter the construction phase in Spring 2019.

Apart from Nexans and MHI Vestas, the key suppliers involved in the project are Jan De Nul, in charge of the fabrication and installation of foundations and the wind turbine installation, Bladt Industries, which will design and fabricate the OHVS, and NSW, which is tasked with manufacturing the inter-array cables.
