South Korean industrial giant LS Cable & System and Dutch company van Oord have begun the installation of a new offshore power cable connecting Noordwijk beach and a new wind farm in Luchterduinen in the Netherlands.

Mid October saw the start of the crucial phase of cable laying and jointing in the submarine works for the new offshore wind farm 23 kilometres off the Dutch north coast.

A huge submarine vessel landed at the beach carrying the export power cable that will be used to transport the 129 megawatts generated by the 43 turbine wind farm to the shore.

The cable will then be buried in the sea bed over a length of approximately 25 kilometres from the beach to the offshore substation at the wind farm .

It is a project commissioned by wind farm developer Eneco (one of the largest producers and suppliers of natural gas, electricity and heat in the Netherlands) and the main contractor is the Dutch company, van Oord.

Korean firm LS Cable have provided the underwater cable in conjunction with their Dutch agent LGCE-Quics and carried out the joint work for each cable end.

It is expected that the installation works on the beach will be finished by the beginning of November.

Early next year the wind turbines will be installed in the Dutch North Sea. By the end of 2015, this wind farm will provide electricity to around 150,000 households.
