nkt cables has supplied the 72 kV connector which enables power transmission from one of the two V164 8MW prototype wind turbines from MHI Vestas installed in Maade, near Esbjerg on Denmark’s west coast. The two wind turbines, which are the largest on the market, provide power to approximately 18,000 Danish households.  

The Maade project is one of the first to make use of the 72 kV connector and installation was handled by VB-entreprise, an experienced, local nkt cables and MHI Vestas partner.

Only very few global suppliers, including nkt cables, manufactures and markets an extensive range of cable accessories ready for the 72 kV offshore segment. Furthermore, the range can be combined with nkt cables’ portfolio of medium- and high-voltage power cables, allowing the company to be a complete solution provider.  

For more than 20 years, nkt cables has manufactured and delivered accessories for a large number of wind farm projects in Central and Northern Europe.
