Prysmian to Connect Three French Offshore Wind Farms to Mainland

Prysmian has been awarded a contract from Réseau de Transport d’Électricité to develop submarine cable links to connect the three planned offshore wind farms to the mainland power grid in mainland France.

The offshore wind farms to be connected via submarine cable are Fécamp, Calvados and Saint Nazaire.

The contract is worth more than €300 million.

As Prysmian explained, the links will consist of High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) 220 kV three-core cables with XLPE insulation and single wire armouring.

Massimo Battaini, SVP of Prysmian Energy Projects, said: “We are proud to support RTE in this important challenge. The offshore wind market in France is a new, promising development in this segment, and this contract not only consolidates our relationship with RTE but also reaffirms Prysmian’s world leadership in providing HV submarine cable solutions.”

The future cable links will be produced in the company’s centres of excellence in Arco Felice, Italy and Pikkala, Finland.

The cables for the land sections will be manufactured in Gron, France.
