Nexans has secured a contract from National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) to supply submarine cable for the Mindanao Visayas Interconnection Project in Philippines.

The contract value amounts to over EUR 100 million and includes manufacturing, delivery and installation of 350 kV HVDC submarine cable.

NGCP launched the Mindanao-Visayas Interconnection Project (MVIP) to connect the three power grids of Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao into one unified national grid.

With the completion of the MVIP, expected by 2020, NGCP aims to ensure a more stable and secure supply of power in the country and maximize the use of available local energy resources.

The 350 kV submarine MI cable will be manufactured in Nexans’ Nippon High Voltage Cable Corporation plant in Futtsu, Japan as well as in Nexans Norway plant in Halden.

The installation and protection works at water depths up to 650 meters will be performed by Nexans’ specialized cable laying vessel C/S Nexans Skagerrak.

Nexans is delighted to once again be trusted by NGCP, building on a number of projects the group has successfully completed in the region,” said Vincent Dessale, senior executive vice president Nexans Subsea and Land Systems Business Group. “Leveraging on Nexans’ cutting-edge submarine cabling technology and our teams’ deep water installation know-how, we look forward to contributing to the construction of a single national grid, which will provide a more reliable electricity transmission to the Philippine people.”
