Ørsted Picks WIND for Inter-Array Cable Storage

WIND has secured a contract by Ørsted for the storage and onshore handling of inter-array cables and accessories at its site in Velsen, the Netherlands.

The 20-year framework agreement includes all of Ørsted's current and future offshore wind farms in Europe.

The inter-array cables and accessories will be centralized from their current various storage locations in Europe to WIND's yard in Velsen.

For this purpose, the Dutch company said it is planning to further expand its warehouse capacity from where logistics and repairs will also be handled.

“The trust that Ørsted is showing in us by combining its storage of subsea cables for all its European wind farms into one efficient yard is greatly appreciated," said WIND Managing Director Tom Nooij.

"On a more general note, this development contributes further to the centralisation of cable related services in the European offshore renewables market and will help the offshore wind industry achieve a decrease of repair and maintenance costs."
