Prysmian Sets Up Wikinger Inter-Array Cables

Italian subsea cable specialist Prysmian said it has completed the laying phase for the Wikinger offshore wind farm ahead of schedule.

Termination and testing works are currently in progress.

“This milestone, which is quite uncommon in the offshore wind market, highlights the Group’s capabilities in managing turnkey inter-array contracts and re-affirms the strong focus Prysmian has in the offshore wind market,” stated Massimo Battaini SVP Energy Projects.

“We have been heavily investing in developing our project execution and cable installation capabilities. We can now count on new assets, such as our cable barge, Ulisse, for shallow water installation as well as new jetting and cable protection machines.”

Iberdrola awarded Prysmian the €60 million contract in 2015 to supply and install the inter-array cables within the wind farm. Prysmian is responsible for the design, manufacture, installation, burial, termination and testing of 80 km of 33 kV submarine cables with different cross-sections to connect the 70 wind turbines and the offshore substation that form the 350 MW wind farm.

Work began in 2016, when cables were produced in Prysmian’s facility in Drammen, Norway, one of the Group’s excellence centres for submarine cables.
