RWE Innogy has begun laying the first inter-array cable at the construction site of the 295 MW Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm, located off the coast of Germany.

By mid-2014, RWE says 64 km of the 33 kV submarine cable will have connected the 48 wind turbines with the offshore transformer substation. The Dutch company Visser & Smit Marine Contracting is leading this work.

“Until now, 24 of the 48 foundations for the wind turbines have been successfully installed,” notes Marcel Sunier, the Nordsee Ost project director. “Because of this, we can now start with the cable-laying process.”
