WIND, a Dutch subsea cable specialist, has signed a framework agreement with TenneT for the provision of cable transfers and cable storage for offshore spare export cables. The first cable for Hollandse Kust Noord will arrive with WIND before the end of Q2 this year.

The contract scope includes the supply of cable storage equipment, the execution of cable transfers and management and storage of spare export cables. For the foreseeable future, further spare cables will be stored at WIND’s spacious cable storage and repair yard in Velsen Noord, the Netherlands.

‘This framework agreement cements our partnership with TenneT for the coming years,’ says WIND CEO, Tom Nooij. ‘Their trust allows us to guarantee the flexibility in cable requirements they need to continue vastly developing the offshore wind farm landscape in Europe.’
