NKT has been awarded the turnkey project from Equinor for the 132 kV high-voltage cable connecting the oil and gas platforms Johan Sverdrup 2 and Gina Krog.

Equinor has selected NKT as the turnkey supplier for the high-voltage cable project connecting the Norwegian offshore platforms in the North Sea. The order has a value of approximately €29 million in market prices (approximately €25 million in std. metal prices) and comprises supply and installation of 62 kilometers of a 132 kV AC XLPE high-voltage power cable solution.

Connecting the platforms allows Equinor to power Gina Krog from shore by leveraging the already planned power link connecting Johan Sverdrup 2 to the onshore power grid, currently under development by NKT.

NKT, which is currently executing on the power cable link connecting Johan Sverdrup 2 to shore, recently completed the power from shore connections for the platforms Johan Sverdrup 1 and Martin Linge.
