France’s Nexans has won a contract from the Orsted-Eversource Energy joint venture to manufacture the high voltage (HV) subsea cables for the developers’ 132MW South Fork project offshore wind project off the state New York in the US Atlantic.

The contractor will deliver some 110km (68 miles) of three-phase 138kV high voltage alternating current (HVAC) lines out of its plant in South Carolina for the project, located 55km off Montauk Point in the south of the state, to transport produced power to flow into the onshore grid at Long Island.
