Group has been awarded a contract by Dongfang Electric Corporation (DEC),
one of the biggest state-owned enterprises in China and one of the world’s
largest power generation equipment manufacturers and project contractors.
The contract includes the supply of cables for DEC’s newest 10 MW offshore
wind turbine prototype that will be installed in China Three Gorges Corporation’s
Xinghuawan wind farm in the Fujian province, China. Cables will be manufactured
in the Group’s plant located in Tianjin, China.
The new mega-turbine was developed for the offshore wind areas along China’s
southeast coast. It is a direct-drive permanent-magnet offshore turbine,
which DEC claim can resist 77 m/s typhoon winds and has a 185 m blade diameter.
This turbine can generate 4 GWh of power each year (with 10 m/s wind),
reducing coal consumption by 13,000 tons and carbon emissions by 3,500
In 2019, Prysmian Group secured contract awards for several projects, including
Kust Zuid 3&4
the Group has also been awarded a global contract for the full year 2020
to supply wind turbine tower and nacelle cables and assemblies by Siemens
