Energinet.dk Postpones Anholt Cable Replacement

Energinet.dk, the Danish transmission system operator, has decided to postpone Anholt offshore wind farm cable repair.

The operation was scheduled for the late September. However, due to an error in NKT’s replacement cables, the work had to be pushed back. A new date will be announced promptly.

“The cable supplier is still preparing the replacement cable,” says Torben Glar Nielsen, technical director of Energinet.dk. “There was a failure with the replacement wire which has pushed back the process.”

Following a fault on a export cable in February, transmission operator in cooperation with NKT Cables identified there is a risk of error in the first 400 meters of the submarine cable from Grenå and the last 4 km before the substation.
