NKT has accomplished the ability from shore cable system for Equinor’s Martin Linge oil and fuel area in Norway.
The cable system resolution from NKT performs a key half in making the sphere extra carbon-efficient as is it powered from shore by the 163 kilometers lengthy 145 kV high-voltage alternate present (HVAC) energy cable. The mission has been executed on behalf of Subsea 7.
“We are completely happy to proceed the nice collaboration with Subsea 7 and Equinor and to be supporting their deal with driving sustainable offshore operations with our intensive expertise in turnkey options for the oil and fuel sector. It is a superb achievement for NKT having put in the world’s longest HVAC submarine cable resolution and we as soon as once more show that we’ve got the inhouse experience to design, develop and set up options in very demanding and sophisticated environments,” stated Andreas Berthou, government vice chairman and head of HV Solutions at NKT.
NKT has designed, engineered, manufactured and put in the cable order comprising the 145 kV three-core XLPE HVAC submarine cable together with fiber optic hyperlinks with a 55 MW capability.
Furthermore, a three,5 km lengthy, 17,5 kV infield cable was put in – together with 500 meters of dynamic cable.
The energy from shore resolution from NKT will assist Equinor save 200,000 tonnes CO2 yearly as soon as the sphere is in operation because the actions of Martin Linge can be powered from the onshore energy grid as a substitute of onsite mills.
