Advancements in technology, economies of scale, and optimized installation processes have led to cost reductions in array and export cables. As a result, offshore wind projects have become more economically viable, driving a significant increase in demand for these cables. The continuous improvement and widespread adoption of array and export cables contribute significantly to the expansion and success of offshore wind power initiatives, fostering a greener and more sustainable energy landscape. Array cables play a vital role in enabling this integration by efficiently transmitting electricity generated from offshore wind farms to the onshore grids. This not only helps countries meet their renewable energy targets but also reduces their dependence on fossil fuel-based power generation.
