NSW has been awarded the contract for planning, producing and delivering of the inner array cable of the Trianel Windpark Borkum (Phase II) by his customer Siem Offshore Contractors.

The contract between NSW (Norddeutsche Seekabelwerke GmbH), subsidiary of General Cable Corp., USA, and Siem Offshore Contractors (SOC), subsidiary of Siem Offshore Inc, Norway, was signed in Leer, Germany.

The order includes the planning and manufacturing of around 60 km medium voltage submarine power cables, whose delivery is planned for middle of 2018. They will connect the 32 wind turbine foundations of the second construction phase of the Trianel Windpark Borkum to the existing substation, which was installed as part of the Trianel Windpark Borkum phase 1. The wind farm is located about 45 km off the island of Borkum and about 44 km to the northwest of the island of Juist in the North Sea.
