The cables will be produced at Hellenic Cables’ plant in Corinth, Greece and in its underground high voltage cable manufacturing facility in Thiva, Greece. Production of the cables will be completed by October 2024, and load-out is scheduled to take place in 2025.

We stand ready to provide reliable and sustainable products and solutions to our clients, laying the foundations for Europe’s energy transition on a sustainable path.”
