NKT and RWE Innogy sign wind-farm cable contract

RWE Innogy, a renewable energy company, and NKT, a supplier of cables for the electricity and energy sector, have signed a contract worth around €35m (£29m) for the manufacture and delivery of high-voltage sea cable for the Gwynt y Môr offshore wind farm.

NKT will produce four 132kV high-voltage offshore cables for RWE Innogy at its newly built cable plant in Cologne.

Cable manufacture should begin at the end of 2011 and be completed in mid-2012.
