South Korea’s LS Cable & System announced that the company has signed a contract with Orsted, a Denmark-based power company, to supply high-voltage cables for Hornsea Project Two, the world’s largest offshore wind farm.
A press release said that LS Cable will supply 350 km of onshore high-voltage cables, including 400-kilovolt cables, by 2021. The site is located 89 km off the Yorkshire coast in the U.K.
"This contract is meaningful because it continues the trend of supplying cables for new renewable energy projects in Europe, the home of cable business. We hope to expand opportunities for projects in Europe, North America and Asia," said LS Cable & System CEO Roe-Hyun Myung.
Per the company, when the project is complete and operational in 2022, it will be capable of supplying electricity to well over 1.3 million homes and surpass its sister project, Hornsea Project One, as the world’s biggest offshore wind farm. The two sites will produce a combined 2.4 gigawatts of electricity.
