Vattenfall and TKF have inked a multi-year collaboration for the provision of inter-array cables to offshore wind farms in Europe. This partnership covers 66kV inter-array cables and is applicable to all of Vattenfall’s forthcoming bottom-fixed European wind farm projects.
This comprehensive agreement, which takes immediate effect, is structured as a multi-year sole-source contract. The first project it will be utilized for is the Nordlicht cluster in Germany.
Initially, the contract is signed for a three-year term, with the potential for an extension of up to five additional years. Notably, sustainability was a key focus during the procurement process, with Vattenfall highlighting TKF’s commitments to reducing CO2 emissions and enhancing cable circularity, including the utilization of low-carbon aluminum and recycled copper for cable conductors.
Catrin Jung, Head of offshore wind at Vattenfall said “At Vattenfall, we are working for fossil freedom and offshore wind farms play an important role in realising our ambitions.”
“We are pleased that in TKF we have found a partner that provides innovative technology while committing to the reliability and sustainability of the offshore electricity network.”
“With this framework agreement we are taking a major step in the synergy of project specifications and therewith in the reliability and efficiency of wind farm projects.”
Alexander van der Lof, TKH Group chief executive, commented “We are excited to announce this multiple year agreement with Vattenfall for our subsidiary TKF.”
“After a successful cooperation with Vattenfall in the Hollandse Kust Zuid 1 and 2 projects, we are looking forward working together in the coming projects.”
“TKF has invested significantly in electrification with expansions in capacity for state of the art offshore wind subsea cable solutions.”
“With this important milestone we confirm our strong position and our key role in empowering a sustainable future with our innovative and sustainable cable solutions.”
