Nexans’ cable laying vessel, Nexans Skagerrak is heading towards Philippines to install Visayas Mindanao Interconnector. The vessel will install two lengths of 92 kilometres submarine cable to link the Visayas and Mindanao grids.

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

Nexans was awarded a turnkey contract for the submarine link of the
Visayas Mindanao Interconnector. The contract value amounts to approximately €100 million and includes manufacturing, delivery and installation of 350 kV high voltage direct current mass-impregnated (MI) submarine cable in water depth up to 650 m.

The project is scheduled to complete by the end of November 2020. At the completion of the proposed link, all three major Philippine islands will create one grid and ensure the sharing of energy sources across the network.
