Submarine Cable Systems
Nexans Norway offers customised and cost-effective solutions for the supply of electric power from shore or between platforms by means of submarine power cables. We also offer a complete range of safety cables for installations in hazardous environments on board platforms.

Nexans Norway offers customised and cost-effective solutions for the supply of offshore electric power and combined cables. We also offer a complete range of topside safety cables for installations in hazardous environments. Supplying power and communication to offshore installations from energy sources onshore will result in smaller sized platforms, reduced manpower and lower CO2 emission. The first offshore development where this concept was employed was the Troll field in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. The required 18 MW platform power supply is provided through a 67 km long, 52 kV XLPE insulated composite power and fibre optic cable. Nexans turnkey contract for this job included design, engineering, manufacture, installation and protection of the cable. The Abu Safah project offshore the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an other turn-key contract for Nexans. The scope covers installation of more than 240 km power and fibre optic cable, of which Nexans is responsible for supply of 70 km 15 kV power cable and 123 km fibre optic cable.

Onshore wind energy has grown enormously lately and generates today more than 10 % of the electric power production in Denmark and Schleswig-Holstein in Germany and is increasing mainly all over the world.

In order to avoid use of land and to reduce noise and visual pollution there is today a trend to move offshore. The first large-scale offshore windmill farms have now been built. The transport of power from the windmill farm to the grid on land requires the use of submarine power cables. As a major supplier to the international market including the offshore market of long AC and DC submarine power cables, Nexans Norway is well prepared to bring forward cost-efficient solutions required for the offshore windmill farms.
