Hellenic Cables has been awarded the 1200MW Dogger Bank C array cable contract by DEME Offshore.

Already the designated cables’ supplier for Dogger Bank A and B, with this contract Hellenic Cables becomes the sole inter array cables’ supplier for the world’s largest offshore wind farm.

Combined, the 3600GW project off the north east of England will be capable of powering up to 6 million homes contributing substantially to UK’s and Europe’s goal for net zero carbon emissions.

Dogger Bank C is a joint venture between SSE Renewables and Equinor, while Dogger Bank A and B are owned by SSE Renewables, Equinor, and Eni.

SSE Renewables is leading the construction and delivery of all three phases of Dogger Bank Wind Farm, while Equinor will operate Dogger Bank Wind Farm on completion.

Under the new contract, Hellenic Cables will design, manufacture, test, and supply approx. 240 km of 66 kV XLPE-insulated inter-array cables and associated accessories.

This is in addition to 650 km of array cables already awarded for phases A & B.

The cables will be produced at Hellenic Cables’ vertically integrated, state-of-the-art submarine cables plant (pictured) in Corinth, Greece.

Production of the cables for Dogger Bank C is set to begin in 2023 and delivery will be a phased roll out in line with the project execution programme.

Hellenic Cables chief executive Alexis Alexiou said: "We’re proud to be the exclusive array cables supplier for the world’s largest offshore wind farm, which provides the UK’s largest single source of renewable energy.

"Dogger Bank C reinforces the position of Hellenic Cables as enabler of the clean energy transition."

DEME Offshore general manager Bart De Poorter added: "Over the past years, DEME Offshore and Hellenic Cables have been successfully delivering large-scale cable projects together.

"We very much look forward to partnering each other again and leveraging our joint expertise to deliver this major project."
