An agreement has been signed by Eversource, Nexans and Ørsted for up to 1,000km of subsea high voltage export cables for offshore wind farms in North America.

“Nexans’ advanced subsea cables will contribute both to the overall performance and to increasing the energy efficiency of Ørsted’s projects.”
