Nexans, a Paris-headquartered provider of cables and cabling systems, has signed a contract with Canadian Renewable Energy Corp. (CREC), a wholly owned subsidiary of Canadian Hydro Developers Inc., to design, manufacture and supply a high-voltage submarine power cable for the Wolfe Island Wind Project, located near Kingston, Ontario.

The project will consist of 86 2.3 MW wind turbines, which have the capacity to power 75,000 households per year. Construction is scheduled to commence in spring of 2007, with commercial operation expected in October 2008.

The 7.8 km cable will be the first 3-core XLPE submarine cable to achieve a voltage rating of 245 kV, Nexans says. The cable will be produced at the Nexans factory in Halden, Norway, and is expected to be delivered in May of 2008.
