Experts in community building
As a supplier of cables to electricity grids in many countries, NKT has an important role in building our common community. It is a task that we take very seriously. Specifically, we do this by providing functional, environmentally adapted, reliable and economically advantageous systems for operators and customers in generation, transmission, installation and distribution of electric power.
Total supplier for the distribution market
NKT is a partner that delivers total solutions for the entire distribution market, from production to consumption. This diversity makes us experts in all kinds of physically connected electrical facilities. For you as a customer, it is reassuring to know that we can handle the entire electricity grid, from power plants to power outlets. If you ask NKT, we have the products for the smallest job through to the biggest.
We will help you throughout the customer journey
For NKT it is not enough to just manufacture and supply high-end cables. We also provide the best support to helping our customers throughout the installation. Our service programme is well developed and aims to optimise the use of our products. By being out on site with our customers and assisting during complicated installations, we can also guarantee the performance and function of our products, as well as instructing the customer on how the products work when integrated as a system.
NKT runs all its power cable factories with renewable energy
NKT is now powering its power cable manufacturing with electricity from renewable energy. This is reducing its CO2-emissions from energy consumption with 66%. For NKT, the move to green electricity is a key step in supporting the global transition to renewables by reducing the carbon footprint of its power cable solutions.
We are taking our responsibility seriously as a key contributor to the infrastructure needed for the green transformation
Power cables are essential components for the interconnected power grid crucial to the success of the global transition to renewable energy and as a leading provider of power cable solutions, NKT continues to reduce the environmental impact of its portfolio and now runs all its power cable manufacturing on electricity generated from renewable energy sources. This reduces the company’s CO2-emissions from its energy consumption on factories and for the cable-laying vessel NKT Victoria with 66% compared to last year saving more than 48,000 tons of CO2 annually – equivalent of the annual electricity use of 8,148 homes.
Growing focus on sustainable power cable solutions
For NKT, the move to green electricity is part of a series of dedicated initiatives aiming for decarbonising its power cable solutions contributing to the global energy transformation. Other initiatives include recycling of materials such as XLPE and metals from the production of power cables and dedicated projects to increase the energy efficiency of its cable manufacturing. Furthermore, NKT owns and operates NKT Victoria, which is the most sustainable cable laying vessel in the offshore industry.
