Inter-array cable

The fifty-four turbines are connected by ten strings of aluminium cables, with an overall length of around 70 kilometres. In most cases the strings will be looped in order to maximise power export capability.

Two different cable cross-sections are used; 240 mm2 and 800 mm2.

The cables have been installed in the period Spring to Autumn 2016.

SIEM Offshore Contractors has been awarded the contract to supply and install the inter-array cables for Nordsee One.
