Jan De Nul Group and Hellenic Cables will together install a 135.7 km submarine power cable between the island of Crete and the Peloponnese region of the Greek mainland. Hellenic Cables will manufacture the submarine cable in its 100% subsidiary Fulgor SA, while Jan De Nul Group will carry out installation of the cable in water depths up to 980 metres, using its cable laying vessel Isaac Newton, with the pre- and post-lay protection works up to 600 meters water depth.
Independent Hellenic Transmission Operator (ADMIE) is the operator of
the project.

Wouter Vermeersch, Manager Offshore Cables at Jan De Nul Group commented: ‘After the successful execution of the Borkum Riffgrund 2 and Trianel export cable projects back in 2018, we are pleased to continue our good relationship with Hellenic Cables through the award of this challenging interconnection project. The cable route runs over very deep waters and a difficult seabed with extremely steep slopes.’


In 2018, ADMIE awarded Fulgor a contract of approximately €140 million to supply and install 135km 150 kV submarine cable (one of two cables to connect the island of Crete to the national power transmission grid in Peloponnese), and 87km 150kV underground cables to connect both submarine cables to the national power transmission grid on the side of Peloponnese.


The assignment also covers the design, manufacturing, and installation of 204 km 150 kV underground cables, connecting landing points of the submarine cables in Crete to the HV substation in Chania area.
