January 14 (Renewables Now) - Hellenic Cables, part of Belgium’s Cenergy Holdings SA (EBR:CENER), said it has completed the production and load-out of cables under a contract for the partial supply of inter-array cables for the 2.6-GW Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project in the US.
Under the contract awarded by US utility Dominion Energy Inc (NYSE:D), Hellenic Cables was tasked with the design, supply and storage of about 50 km (31 miles) of 66-kV submarine cables that will connect the wind turbines to the offshore substation.
Hellenic Cables produced the cables in its factory in Corinth, Greece.
The cable manufacturer said this contract adds to the award in 2020 of an array cables deal for the Mayflower Wind project in the US. The company has set up a local subsidiary, Hellenic Cables America Inc.
The CVOW project, the federal permitting process for which started in the summer of 2021, is planned to be completed in 2026. Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy SA (BME:SGRE) recently announced an agreement to deliver 14-MW turbines for the offshore wind park.
