LS Cable & System said on Monday that it had signed a contract with the Denmark-based power company Orsted to supply high-voltage cables for the world’s largest offshore wind farm, Hornsea Project Two.

Under the contract, LS Cable will supply 350 kilometers of onshore high-voltage cables, including 400-kilovolt cables, by 2021.

Hornsea Project Two will be located 89 kilometers off the Yorkshire coast in the UK. 

When operational in 2022, it will be capable of supplying electricity to well over 1.3 million homes and surpass its sister project, Hornsea Project One, as the world’s biggest offshore wind farm, according to LS Cable & System.

When both are completed, they will produce a combined 2.4 gigawatts of electricity.

“This contract is meaningful because it continues the trend of supplying cables for new renewable energy projects in Europe, the home of cable business. We hope to expand opportunities for projects in Europe, North America and Asia,” said Roe-Hyun Myung, CEO of LS Cable & System.
