Nexans loads out Greek interconnector cable

In: Cables
Nexans Norway's 150 kV HVAC three-core subsea cable with an internal fiber optical element, is on its way from Halden to Greece to link the Greek island of Syros with the port city of Lavrio, located on the mainland.

It is loaded aboard the Maersk Connector operated by DeepOcean.  The vessel is specifically designed to transport and install large volumes of high voltage alternating and direct current power cable via its on-board 7000te capacity carousel.

Nexan's secured a turnkey contract awarded to within the Phase C of the project which covered seabed survey, design, manufacturing, installation and protection of a 150 kV HVAC three-core submarine power cable with an internal fiber optical element. The route extends to 108 km and will be installed at a maximum water depth of 300 metres.

The submarine cables for the link were produced by Nexans Norway in its Halden plant, while the fibre optical cable was produced in Nexans Norway’s factory in Rognan.

By interconnecting the Cyclades Islands, ADMIE, Independent Power Transmission Operator (IPTO) seeks to reduce the number of the existing power stations operating on heavy fuel oil and light fuel oil (diesel) and create the necessary infrastructure for harnessing the significant renewable power potential in the region.
