Maritime contractor Jan De Nul has been indicated to pull the cables for the Thor project, Denmark’s largest offshore wind farm. The company announced the news on Tuesday.
Jan De Nul was awarded the contract together with partner Hellenic Cables. The latter will design and manufacture all cables in Greece; Jan De Nul will perform the transportation, laying, and burial works. The project involves many kilometers of cable between the wind farm and the mainland and the 72 wind turbines.
‘Challenging North Sea environment’
Wouter Vermeersch, Manager Offshore Cables at Jan De Nul Group: […] “Our fleet of versatile vessels and cable trenching tools is ideally suited to install these cables in the challenging North Sea environment on the West coast of Denmark.”
With a planned capacity of more than 1 000 megawatts, Thor will be built in the Danish North Sea, approximately 22 kilometers from Thorsminde on the west coast of Jutland.
One million Danish households
Once fully operational, planned no later than the end of 2027, Thor should be capable of producing enough green electricity to supply the equivalent of more than one million Danish households.
