Reka Cables provides cables for 100 turbines in Norwegian wind parks

Reka Cables provides 210 kilometres of medium voltage cables for three wind parks in Norway.

In cooperation with Norwegian network construction company Linka AS, Reka Cables will provide cabling for onshore wind parks of Geitfjellet, Harbaksfjellet and Kvenndalsfjellet in Norway. Reka’s 36 kV medium-voltage cables will ensure energy transfer of altogether one hundred wind turbines.

The construction of the wind parks has started in 2018 and will be finished during 2020. The three wind parks fitted with Reka’s cables will produce 1401 GWh of electricity and have an installed capacity of 420 megawatts. When ready, the six wind parks in the area will form the largest onshore wind farm in Europe.

“As renewable energy is increasing rapidly in Europe, Reka Cables has developed high-quality cable solutions specifically for wind power applications. We are proud of being part of the development towards more sustainable energy production”, says Ralf Sohlström, CEO of Reka Cables.

Reka offers tried-and-true solutions for challenging Nordic environments

Reka Cables’ Dryrex WIND products are medium-voltage cables especially well-suited for use in wind farm energy transfer networks. They can be installed directly into the ground both on the shoreline and on terracing protruding outwards from the shore. Dryrex WIND cables may also be used in repeatedly and continuously wet soil.

Reka Cables has several years of experience in vertical cables installed in wind turbine towers. The halogen-free power and MV cables in Reka’s wind power cable product range are an economical and tried-and-true solution for all kinds of wind farms, including those intended for challenging Nordic environments.
