NSW gets Kentish Flats cabling nod

Germany-based NSW has won a contract from Vattenfall to supply cable for the 50MW extension to its Kentish Flats offshore wind farm in the UK.

NSW, a subsidiary of General Cable, will deliver 30km MVAC array subsea cables for the project in southern England.

Senior vice president Thorsten Schwarz said: “As a partner to the offshore wind industry from the first hour, we have been positioning ourselves also for projects in UK and this contract just fits perfectly into our market strategy.”
