Nexans Olex delivers a complete solution for Ararat Wind Farm, Victoria

Ararat Wind Farm is Australia’s third largest and consists of 75 turbines with 240MW facility. It generates enough electricity to power 120,000 homes in Victoria.

Nexans Olex was the chosen supplier to supply 218km of 33kV medium voltage collector system cable and 66km of specialized turbine tower dropper cables to Keppel Prince, the tower manufacturer. The cables were successfully delivered over a six-month period through by a collaborative effort of 3 Nexans manufacturing plants. 

Nexans Power Accessories Business Group (Australmold) supplied 33kV separable connectors (elbows) and terminations for a unique jointing solution plus traditional tower and substation terminations.

A true triumph in collaboration between the Nexans teams, both locally and internationally was the key success in delivering this project from start to finish.
