Nexans has secured a two-year global supply contract with Vestas Wind Systems to provide around one million WINDLINK® cable kits for turbines destined for onshore wind farms in Europe, the US, China and Brazil. This latest agreement extends Nexans’s long-standing position as a leading global supplier for Vestas.

The Vestas contract demonstrates Nexans’s ambition to lead the change to a new world of electrification through cost-effective wind power projects.

The low voltage (LV) and medium voltage (MV) cable kits will be installed inside Vestas onshore wind turbines rated at 2, 3 and 4 megawatt (MW). They will provide pre- connected, pre-tested and easy-to-fit connections for power, control and communication functions within the nacelle, tower and control panels.

The cables that Nexans is supplying to Vestas feature rubber, thermoplastic or silicone insulation according to their specific application. A significant new development for this latest contract will be the use of completely lead-free materials in the construction of MV cables.

In addition to the performance and reliability of the WINDLINK® cables, Vestas also appreciates the comprehensive portfolio and dedicated expertise in technical support provided by Nexans.

The WINDLINK® cable kits also benefit from a supply chain support worldwide thanks to Nexans’s manufacturing footprint in Europe, US, China and Brazil, including a recent extension of capacity in Poland and China.

We are delighted to further extend our relationship with Vestas. Our vision is to build a world that is safer, sustainable, renewable, decarbonized and accessible to everyone and the wind turbines manufactured by Vestas are a perfect fit for that vision. It is also especially pleasing that our solutions will be fitted within the next-generation EnVentus platform that enables turbines to provide more wind energy efficiently.” Christopher GuérinCEO, Nexans
