Nexans, a global leader in advanced cabling and connectivity solutions, and Tesmec S.p.A., at the head of a group leader in the market of infrastructures related to the transport and distribution of energy, data and materials, today announced that the consortium between Nexans and Tesmec’s subsidiary Marais Laying Technologies Australia has been selected by the Goldwind Australia’s Stockyard Hill project’s Balance of Plant contractor SNC-Lavalin and WHBO joint venture to provide a complete collector cable service. The contract covers the design, manufacturing, supply, installation and testing of the cable network and is worth over 12 million euros (around 20 million AUD), of which approximately 5.2 million euros (around 9.1 million AUD) will be attributed to Nexans.

Marais Laying Technologies Australia brings to the consortium its expertise in the automated trenching and laying of long lengths of single-core cable. The Marais SMC 200 R Trencher will be used to cut around 130 km of narrow trench while simultaneously laying the cables and backfilling. The highly automated approach provides close control of the trenching process. This enables the cross-section of the trench to be minimized while still providing the protection essential to maintain the cable ratings, so that less sand is used in the construction of the wind farm.

For the Stockyard Hill project Nexans is providing its range of Nexans WINDLINK® solutions consisting of a variety of 33 kV power cables manufactured at Nexans China facility in Yanggu, China, with aluminium conductor cross-sections ranging from 95 mm2 to 1,000 mm2. Building on its industry-leading expertise in network engineering, Nexans offers a unique capability to manufacture the cables in long continuous lengths, allowing for an optimized cable network layout with a minimum number of joints. As part of its complete end-to-end service, Nexans Olex subsidiary Nexans Australmold is also supplying the underground junction cabinets for the cables, the indoor terminations for the substation connections and the tower end ring main unit (RMU) connections.

A total of 275 km of 33 kV Nexans WINDLINK® cables will be installed in trenches to collect the electricity produced by the individual wind turbines and feed it into three 33/132 kV substations that will connect the wind farm to the local grid.
