Prysmian has been awarded a contract by Van Oord for the development of a submarine inter–array cables system for Borssele III & IV offshore wind farms.

Prysmian will be responsible for the design, manufacture, supply and testing of about 175 km of 66 kV three core cables with XLPE insulation of various cross – section and all related accessories for Borssele III & IV wind farms.

Borssele III & IV wind farms are part of the wide Borssele wind farm zone located near the southern border of the Dutch Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), approximately 25 kilometers from the shore, and will have a total installed capacity of 731.5 MW with individual wind turbine capacity of 9.54 MW.

“This award confirms our leading role in the development of offshore wind farms in Europe and in the growing inter-array market as well as of our superior project management skills offering customised, high-performance solutions to our customers,” said Hakan Ozmen, EVP Projects at Prysmian Group.

This project will provide electricity to more than 800.000 households in The Netherlands and it is part of a wider energy plan supported by Dutch government for the development of an energy mix aimed to achieve 16% of total generated electricity in renewable energy by 2023.

All cables will be produced in Prysmian’s centre of excellence in Pikkala, Finland. The cables are due to be delivered early 2020.
