People looking to compare gas and electricity rates could be encouraged by news that cable supplier Nexans has secured a contract to connect a major offshore wind farm to the grid.
The company has won a £90 million contract from a consortium of firms comprising Nasdar, DONG Energy and E.On that has been developing the London Array wind farm in the Thames Estuary.
Nexans will be responsible for connecting the project to the mainland so that a gigawatt of electricity can be transferred to the grid and made available for public consumption.
Krister Granlie, managing director of Nexans' umbilicals and submarine high-voltage business group, said: "We are happy to demonstrate once again with this major contract Nexans' ability to provide key cable solutions for a better deployment of wind farm infrastructures."
Offshore wind farms are generally more popular than their onshore counterparts as they do not have the same visual impact on the landscape.
