Cable manufacturer Nexans is contracted to supply subsea transmission lines to the 132MW offshore wind project South Fork in New York State waters under development by Ørsted and Eversource, Nexans writes in a statement.
In total, the French company will supply 110 kilometers of high-voltage subsea cables for wind project South Fork in New York State waters located approximately 56 kilometers offshore of Montauk Point.
The order is part of a larger agreement for up to 1,000 kilometers of HV subsea cables in the US ahead of 2027.
Nexans signed that contract with Ørsted Wind Power North America in 2019.
The lines will be made at Nexans' new factory in Charleston, South Carolina, specializing in subsea cable production.
