As offshore wind generators proceed to develop in measurement and energy output, wind farm builders and operators are making ready to modify over to 66 kilovolt (kV) know-how slightly than the present 33 kV know-how. This is as a result of working on the larger voltage affords necessary lifecycle cost-efficiency advantages equivalent to the opportunity of lowering the variety of substations required in addition to lowering the size of cables that should be put in.
From the primary half of 2018 the benefits of 66 kV know-how have been demonstrated in three pilot initiatives: the Blyth Offshore Demonstrator (UK), Nissum Bredning Vind (DK) and Aberdeen Bay (UK) wind parks are all efficiently related to the grid and producing energy. Nexans has performed an necessary position in these initiatives by supplying a spread of merchandise and equipment together with 66 kV sea cables (array and export cables), energy cable equipment (gear bushings, connectors, coupling connectors, surge arresters, dead-end receptacles, junction cupboards), GPH connection know-how and pre-assembled cables.
The Blyth Offshore Demonstrator, 6 km off the UK coast, is a pilot plant constructed by the Renewable Energies Division of the French vitality group EDF. With a complete capability of 41.5 MW, produced by 5 V164-Eight.zero generators from MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, it has produced low-carbon energy for about 34,000 houses since January 2018.
