Prysmian to Build Isle of Capri-Sorrento Subsea Cable

Prysmian Group has secured a contract worth around €40 million for a new submarine cable connection between the isle of Capri and Sorrento (Naples).

The contract has been awarded by Terna Rete Italia S.p.A., a company fully owned by Terna S.p.A., the Italian transmission system operator.

The project will see the installation of an HVAC 150 kV power cable link between the power stations located in Sorrento and on Capri’s Gasto Ecological Island, following a 16 km submarine and 3 km land route.

The Capri-Sorrento cables will be manufactured in the Arco Felice plant (Naples).

Cable laying will be performed by the Prysmian vessel, ‘Cable Enterprise’ with Prysmian providing all related network components and the required specialist civil engineering works.

Completion of the project is scheduled for 2019, the company said.

“It is a source of great satisfaction and pride to be involved in the creation of infrastructure of such strategic importance and prestige for Italy,” said Massimo Battaini, SVP Energy Projects of Prysmian Group. “Prysmian is delivering this project with its experience and cutting-edge technology and the important direct involvement of local resources through our cable factory near Naples.”
