Nexans signed a deal with Ulstein Verft for the construction of Nexans Aurora back in July 2018. Shortly after, it was announced that MAATS Tech will supply a deck spread and Palfinger Marine a major deck equipment package.

Ulstein began the construction of Nexans Aurora in February last year, while delivery is due this year.

Its first assignment will be the installation of the export cables at the 1,075 MW Seagreen offshore wind farm in Scotland.
