Sea cable worth DKK 15 billion is underway

A 516 km. 1.4 GW capacity sea cable shall ensure the exchange of power between Norway and Germany. The joint venture project NordLink between Norway Statnett and German DC Nordseekabel has a budget of 2 billion euros - or DKK 15 billion.

The connection will be 623 km long, of which 516 km are placed on the seabed from Vollesfjord in southern Norway to the north German coast of Wilster. The cable weighs 50 kg pr. meter and is installed by Nexans Skagerak cable installation ship.

When the cable is laid down on the seabed, the offshore vessel Polar King collar cable will bury the cable around a meter into the seabed depending on the conditions.

The first part of the stretch of 124 km. from the Norwegian coast to the Danish sector of the North Sea will be installed this summer, states Executive Vice President of Stattnet, Håkon Borgen.

"An extensive wind power infrastructure has been developed in northern Germany. This cable will enable an interaction between Norwegian hydropower and German wind and solar power. When the sun is shining and the wind blows, it can create a profit in Germany and we can buy energy at a reasonable price. When the wind is weak and the sun does not shine, it can create a demand in Germany and they can buy hydropower from us,” says Håkon Borgen.

The installation of the cable in Germany will start in Wilster for the next few years and the entire project will be ready for commercial operation by 2020.
