Athens, 10 October 2023
Hellenic Cables, the cables segment of Cenergy Holdings has formed a consortium with Jan De Nul Group to design, manufacture, transport and install a package of four 220 kV export cables for the Polish offshore wind farms Baltyk II and Baltyk III. Upon completion, these wind farms, developed by the joint venture of Equinor and Polenergia, will provide green electricity to more than two million Polish households.
Wind farms Baltyk II and Baltyk III are located in the Polish zone of the Baltic Sea. Each of them will have a capacity of 720 MW and connect to the onshore grid via a total of four HVAC submarine cables, with a combined length of 256km. Baltyk II and Baltyk III will be two of the first operational offshore wind farms in Poland, supporting the country in its transition to renewable energy.
With this project, Hellenic Cables and Jan De Nul continue their partnership for offshore cable works, following their recent collaboration on the RWE Thor project in Denmark and on TenneT’s DolWin Kappa project in Germany. Hellenic Cables will be responsible for the design and manufacturing of the 220kV HVAC cables at their factory in Corinth, Greece, while Jan De Nul Group will transport, install, and bury the four export cables. The connection of the two Baltyk wind farms to shore will conclude in 2026.
Alexis Alexiou, CEO of Cenergy Holdings, stated: “Hellenic Cables is proud to renew its collaboration with Jan De Nul and support together Equinor and Polenergia in their export cable needs for Baltyk II & III offshore wind projects. We look forward to executing the project safely, thus helping the energy transition in Poland”.
