Cable laying vessel Connector will take care of the transport and installation of the cables 2Jan De Nul Group, in consortium with LS Cable & System, has won a contract to supply, install, and test three 220 kV alternating current subsea cables to transmit renewable energy from Princess Elisabeth Island to the Belgian high-voltage onshore grid.

The contract includes all works for three 220 kV high-voltage cables with a combined length of 165 km. The partners are responsible for the entire process: from design and engineering, through production and transportation, to installation and testing. The installation will take place in 2028. LS Cable is responsible for the design and production of the cables at its plant in South Korea. Jan De Nul will provide transport, installation, and protection of the cables between the island and the Belgian coast.

The energy island, which is currently being constructed by a Jan De Nul joint venture, is located 45 kilometres off the Belgian coast and is an electricity hub that bundles the cables of the second offshore wind zone in Belgium (the Princess Elisabeth Zone) with future cable connections to other European North Sea countries such as the UK and Denmark. The island will be built on concrete caissons filled with sand and will house almost exclusively transmission infrastructure.
