One of Germany's major undertakings to date is the country's energy transition. In order to achieve energy independence, the nation aims to transition away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy sources, fundamentally altering the energy supply. Germany has made significant investments in renewable energy sources including offshore wind energy, which is produced far out at sea and is anticipated to be a crucial component of the future energy supply. Germany is seeking to increase offshore wind capacity, targeting 20GW, by 2030 and for their energy mix to consist of 65% renewable energy in the same time frame. The BorWin 6 project will help Germany achieve these milestones. By 2027 the twelve, then completed, grid connections in the North Sea will have a transmission capacity of over 10 GW, enough to supply around 12.5 million households in Germany with renewable energy.

To electrify the BorWin 6 project, Nexans will manufacture, install and protect 320 kV DC XLPE 1 core cables to our customer, TenneT. The subsea part, manufactured in Nexans’ flagship site in Halden, Norway will be 2x190km and the land part, manufactured in Nexans’ site in Charleroi, Belgium, 2x46 km. The HVDC-link will be a 320kV in a bipol bundle. The contract includes full Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) turnkey offering and has a contract value of over 300 million euros.

BorWin 6 is TenneT’s last 320kV HVDC project to connect the remaining 1GW from BorWin Cluster in the German North Sea to the onshore grid. The project is included in German renewable legislation and will start operations in 2027.

The commitment to innovation and sustainability, focus on electrification and our recent investments (Aurora cable laying vessel, expansion of Halden plant) dedicated to HVDC projects position Nexans as a major player of the energy transition.
