Subsea cable and connector specialist Hydro Group has supplied the connection systems for the four turbines of the 6MW MeyGen Phase 1A array in the Pentland Firth.

The Aberdeen outfit has completed the links for three Andritz Hammerfest Hydro 1.5MW turbines following a contract with the German company, it said.

The scope of work involved providing the connection management system and interfacing the export cable up to the nacelle, including the dynamic cable. It also included the in-board connection system and the mechanical loading system.

Hydro Group also supplied the complete export connection system for the remaining turbine under a separate deal with developer Atlantis Resources.

“This significant MeyGen project is further testament that Hydro Group is seen as a major operator and supplier to the renewable energy markets,” managing director Doug Whyte said.
