Hellenic Cables Secures New Offshore Wind Contract in the UK
Hellenic Cables, leading provider of submarine cable solutions, has been awarded a contract by Seaway 7, the Renewables business unit of Subsea 7, to supply 66kV inter-array cables and accessories for the Seagreen offshore wind farm.
The Seagreen offshore windfarm project is a 1,075MW project which is located 27 km off the Angus Coast in the Firth of Forth, off the coast of Scotland and will be developed and operated by Seagreen Wind Energy Limited. Once constructed, the windfarm will be the largest in Scotland and is forecasted to provide low carbon energy for around one million homes.
SSE Renewables recently announced the final investment decision (FID) for the 1,075 MW Seagreen 1 offshore wind development, alongside an agreement to sell a 51% stake in Seagreen 1 to Total SA.
Under the contract, Hellenic Cables will design, manufacture, test and supply approx. 320 km of 66 kV XLPE-insulated inter-array cables and associated accessories. The cables will be produced in Corinth, Greece, at Hellenic Cables’ vertically integrated, state-of-the-art submarine cables plant. Delivery is planned by early 2022.
Seaway 7 was awarded by Seagreen Wind Energy Limited a contract for engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) of the foundations and inter-array cables for the Seagreen 1 offshore wind farm.
Mr Alexios Alexiou, CEO of Hellenic Cables commented: “We are proud to support Seaway 7 in a project that will provide low carbon energy for around 1 million homes and enable the clean energy transition in the UK.”
