Recent offshore wind energy trends in North America include a move towards larger turbines and deep-water floating units. Offshore projects require robust cables, precise maritime installation and efficient long-distance transmission – with all phases requiring innovative cable solutions and reliable accessories. Nexans has the expertise and resources to outfit large offshore wind turbines, interconnect them within wind farms and then link them to distant grids. Nexans supplies and lays MV subsea cables between wind turbines and the transformer platform, and the MV or HV link to the onshore substation. Nexans also provides power accessories and topside termination on wind turbines and transformer platforms. At the same time, Nexans has been developing cables and power accessories for those OEMs producing a new generation of stationary and floating turbines.
OFFSHORE OIL & GAS
Nexans Norway is an industry leader in turnkey solutions for subsea oil and gas offshore upstream cabling, with a complete range from36 to 525kV. The design for each project is created based on customer specifications and includes solutions for AC and DC, paper/oil or an extruded polymer insulation. Our coastal factory location allows us to create extremely long lengths. Our multiple-core cable can contain power conductors, fiber optic steel tubes and high-pressure steel tubes for pneumatic or hydraulic applications. Nexans operates its own fleet of installation vessels, giving us quality control from initial design to final commissioning.
