Prysmian Wins Deer Island Interconnection Project

Boston, Massachusetts

Prysmian has been awarded a new contract by Caldwell Marine International, a US construction contractor specialising in submarine utility operations, for the Deer Island – Massachusetts mainland interconnection.

This contract represents a very strategic opportunity for Prysmian Group as we move, following the acquisition of General Cable, to consolidate our presence in the US interconnection market,” stated Hakan Ozmen, EVP Projects, Prysmian Group.

Prysmian Group will be responsible for the design, manufacture, supply and testing of a 6 km 3×630 mm² 115kV submarine cable system with XLPE insulation, plus all related cable accessories to connect Deer Island to mainland Massachusetts (USA).

The Group will also be responsible for the project’s land section, for which it will supply and install 8 km of 115kV land cabling, along with all related accessories.

All submarine cables will be produced at Prysmian’s centre of excellence, located in Arco Felice (Italy). The land cables will be manufactured at Prysmian’s factory in Abbeville (South Carolina, USA), thus offering local expertise to the US market through high-quality products and cable solutions.

Delivery of the project is scheduled for early 2019.
