Norcable has mainly been producing for the export market, but recently the company secured its first contract with Statnett. 18 km long power lines will be installed in new 420 kilovolt overhead lines across Langfjorden in Møre and Romsdal.

Over the past year, we have begun to include environmental requirements as an procurement criteria, which means that we reward the suppliers with a lower carbon-footprint. We look at the entire value chain from raw materials, production, transport and delivery location, says Tor Solberg, Procurement Manager in Statnett.

The fact that our sustainable production of cables gives the company a major advantage in a growing market is an important breakthrough for the domestic market, because we will compete with cables from coal-based production, says Bengt Haugland, CEO at Norcable.
