Omnisens has been selected by DONG Energy to provide Power Cable temperature monitoring systems for the entire export power cable network of Hornsea Project 1 offshore wind farm. This will be one of several DONG Energy projects already awarded to and completed by Omnisens. At 1.2GW Hornsea Project 1 will be the world’s largest offshore wind farm, when it comes into operation in 2022.
Every meter of the export power cable network will be continuously monitored with a temperature accuracy within 2 degrees C to ensure the temperature is controlled within safe operating limits. Each cable circuit is approximately 180 – 190kms long, and the specifications represent one of the most challenging the industry has so far seen.
