Hellenic Cables finalizes agreements with Ørsted/Eversource joint venture for offshore wind projects in New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island
Athens, February 1st, 2023
Hellenic Cables, the cables segment of Cenergy Holdings and major provider of subsea cable solutions for global offshore wind, has finalized the individual contracts with Ørsted and Eversource for two offshore wind projects in the United States.
Under these contracts, Hellenic Cables will design, manufacture, test and supply approx. 260 km of 66 kV XLPE-insulated subsea inter-array cables and associated accessories for South Fork Wind and Revolution Wind in the Northeast U.S. Production will be phased through 2024 according to each individual project’s delivery plan.
Ørsted and Eversource are developing these projects that, upon completion, will generate approximately 830 MW of clean energy, enough to power more than 420,000 homes. These offshore wind farms will make meaningful progress toward achieving state clean energy goals.
Alexis Alexiou, CEO of Hellenic Cables and Cenergy Holdings commented: “This long-term partnership with Ørsted and Eversource is proof of Hellenic Cables’ commitment to the US offshore wind industry as a core part of our business and our strategy for the future. We are proud to work with industry leaders on flagship projects that are transformational for the nation’s energy sector as a whole.”
Hellenic Cables reaffirms its leading role in the development of infrastructure critical to the energy transition in the U.S. and globally. Hellenic Cables’ track record in the United States offshore wind sector includes Mayflower Wind in Massachusetts and Dominion’s Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind, both for the supply of 66 kV array cables.
Finally, following previous announcements, Hellenic Cables and Ørsted continue their discussions concerning a possible partnership for the construction of a submarine cables factory in Maryland, USA.
