Nexans to supply subsea cable

Nexans has been awarded a EUR 87 million contract from Energinet and Statnett to supply a subsea HVDV power cable for the Skagerrak 4 (SK 4) project. The Skagerrak 4 project will create a fourth interconnector between Denmark and Norway, providing an additional 700MW of capacity. SK 4 is scheduled for completion by 2014. In combination with SK 1-3, also delivered by Nexans, the new cable will raise the total capacity of the Skagerrak interconnector to 1700 MW. Nexan will design, manufacture and install the new 140km subsea cable across the Skagerrak strait between the Jutland peninsula of Denmark and Norway. The 500kV HVDC cable, to be produced at the Nexans facility in Halden, Norway will be a MIND (Mass-Impregnated Non-Draining) type and laid at sea depths of up to 530m. Nexans will also install a separate fibre optic subsea cable produced at its factory in Rognan, Norway.
