Enersense Offshore Oy, which specializes in offshore wind, has signed an agreement with Drammen Yard, a Norwegian company that sells and leases offshore wind services, to manufacture four cable carousels, which will be delivered to Norway.

The total weight of carousels is approximately 900 tonnes and they are used, for example, in the manufacture and installation of electrical cables for offshore wind turbines in demanding offshore conditions. The carousels’ final customer is Nexans, which has an extensive track record as a pioneer in technology innovations in projects of ever larger floating offshore wind turbines far out at sea.

“The transaction now concluded opens the way for us to enter the Norwegian market, which is developing and growing rapidly. At Enersense Offshore, we have extensive service offerings and know-how, and we are able to offer a wide range of offshore wind services from smaller projects to large floating and fixed foundation solutions,” says Jaakko Leivo, Executive Vice President at Enersense.

The production of cable coil turntables in Mäntyluoto, Pori, will begin immediately and deliveries will take place between May and July 2023.

“The integration and ramp-up of Enersense Offshore after difficult years is proceeding as planned, and we have also received other agreements to speed up our work with Valmet and Metso Outotec, for example. The bidding calculation for several offshore wind and other projects is currently very active,” Leivo says.
