Belgium set for more power

Scheduled for completion in 2020, a new offshore wind farm is under development in Belgium. To develop the necessary submarine inter- array power cable system, Northwester NV has awarded a contract to NSW, a subsidiary of General Cable and now part of the Prysmian Group. The offshore farm is situated in the Belgian North Sea, about 50km northwest of Ostend, Belgium. NSW will design, produce and deliver 25km of 33kV submarine cables for the inter- array cabling of the Northwester 2 wind farm project and handle the pre-operation cable termination and testing. The cables will be delivered next summer.

“This is a clear indication of how NSW’s experience and know-how in submarine and offshore cable systems can further strengthen Prysmian Group leadership in the offshore wind market, leveraging also on a wider portfolio of products, technologies and assets,” said Hakan Ozmen, EVP projects BU, Prysmian Group. NSW, headquartered in Nordenham, Germany, close to the North Sea, offers repeater and repeaterless fiber optic submarine cable systems and accessories, turnkey submarine power cable systems, and repair and maintenance services for optimal submarine network availability.
