Power cables manufacturer NKT announced it has been awarded a contract to supply the high-voltage power cable that will connect the Edvard Grieg oil and gas production platform to the Johan Sverdrup field center in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea.

NKT said it was selected by Lundin Norway to supply 24 kilometers of 132 kV AC XLPE high-voltage power cable, expected to be commissioned in 2022.

The connection of the two installations enables Lundin to benefit from the already planned power link in conjunction with phase 2 of the Johan Sverdrup development. The link connecting Johan Sverdrup phase 2 to the onshore power grid is currently under development by NKT.

The project will complete the Utsira High Power Hub Project aiming to electrify the oil and gas fields Johan Sverdrup, Gina Krog, Ivar Aasen and Edvard Grieg located on Utsira High in the North Sea with renewable power from shore.

NKT, which has previously provided several power from shore solutions to the oil and gas industry, said it has delivered the power cable solutions for several of the connections ensuring the electrification of the fields included in the Utsira High Power Hub Project.
