Pfisterer wins contract for Moray East Offshore Windfarm
In cooperation with the cable manufacturer TELE-FONIKA Kable and the international cable and pipeline installation contractor Volkerlnfra, Pfisterer has been awarded the contract for the supply of the 220 kV land cable accessories for the grid connection of the new Moray East Offshore Windfarm.
Moray East is a large-scale wind farm project which was granted consent in 2014 by the Scottish Government and will deliver green power for up to one million UK households early in the next decade.
The wind farm is being constructed 22 km off the coast in Moray Firth, Scotland, covering an area of 295 km2. The electricity will be generated by 100 Vestas wind turbines which are connected via several converter stations to a 66-kV array network. The voltage level will be boosted up to 220 kV for transmission back to shore via the export cables.
Pfisterer will supply the 220 kV CONN EX pluggable cable connections for the offshore substation. From the transition Joint bays the PFISTERER MSA one-piece slip on Joints will be used along with the corresponding link boxes for the entire 34 km cable route. Arriving at the New Deer onshore substation Pfisterer’s Outdoor Sealing Ends [ESS terminations] will be used to connect to the overhead bus bar.
