Prysmian said it has secured a series of addition work with Terna Rete Italia — originally included as option — to be added to the Venetian Lagoon submarine power cable links project.
The initial €34 million contract for two 14 km and 6 km long high voltage alternate current (HVAC) 132 kV cable links in Venice was awarded last year.
These new works are worth approximately €20 million and involve the completion of the project aimed at strengthening the high voltage power transmission grid in the Venice area. The project includes 6 km link, made up of high voltage alternate current (HVAC) 132kV cables.
The cables will be produced in the Arco Felice plant, near Naples. Commissioning is scheduled in 2018.
