Nexans has acquired a controlling interest in BE CableCon, a Danish manufacturer and supplier of cable kits for leading wind turbine companies.
BE CableCon was founded in Viborg, Denmark in 2007. It has established a reputation in the design, engineering and manufacture of cable kits that enable wind turbine companies to simplify the installation of the vital power, control and communication cable systems within their towers and nacelles.
The company’s kit range covers low voltage and medium voltage applications including connectors, preconnected and preassembled cable kits, and customised packing for complete ready-to-install kits.
BE CableCon chief executive Klaus Moller will head the new Nexans subsidiary.
Nexans vice president, industry solutions and projects, Alain Robic said “We have developed an excellent working relationship with BE CableCon as a subcontractor for our own kitting projects. Bringing them into the Nexans Group is a key step in our strategy to take greater control of critical elements in our value chain so that we can offer customers a complete engineered connection system. In addition to wind turbines, we will now be able to develop new growth opportunities for cable-kitting solutions in other industry segments.”
