Hellenic cables will deliver 220kV AC submarine cable, which has the biggest diameter ever for our hang-off system to handle.

Besides the hang-off delivery scope, contract includes a test program for verification against project specific load and sealing requirements. These tests will be performed at our premises in The Netherlands.

The Offshore switchyard (OSY) platform will be linked to Rentel platform and to Stevin substation on Zeebrugge beach. The Modular Offshore Grid is scheduled to be operational in the third quarter of 2019.
