The Walney 2 offshore wind farm consists of 51, 3.6 MW wind turbines, with cables buried to a depth of approximately 2 m, and will commence installation in the summer of 2011.
Martin Dale, Commercial Director for Subsea for Draka Offshore, says: "The Walney 2 project represents our first major wind farm project following our expansion.
"We have been delivering subsea power cables to the oil and gas and utility sectors for more than 30 years and this new project demonstrates our ability to deliver the same consistent quality for offshore wind."
Draka will deliver approximately 60 km of 36 kV subsea power cable for use in the Walney 2 offshore wind farm.
Draka will also provide a range of accessories, coordinate installation of accessories and provide commissioning of the circuits.
