UK-based Westermost Rough and Nexans have signed a deal for the delivery and assembly of medium-voltage submarine cables for an upcoming wind farm, which would be built 8km off the Holderness coast in Yorkshire.

The latest order includes about 53km of submarine cables, which will be used for connecting the individual wind turbines to each other and to the transformer platform.

A further 2km of cable will also be supplied for the internal platform cabling. The delivery is slated to start in spring 2013.

Westermost Rough, an offshoot of Denmark-based DONG Energy, will construct and subsequently operate the offshore wind farm, which will have 35 turbines, each with an output of 6MW.

The Westermost Rough wind farm will be situated north-east of the Humber estuary in the North Sea and cover an area of 35km².

The offshore wind farm will generate 210MW of clean electricity over an area of 35km², enough to power 160,000 homes.
