Prysmian Group secures Chinese cable contract

In: Cables
Prysmian 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 tons.

In 2019, Prysmian Group secured contract awards for several projects, including
Provence Grand Large, Vineyard Wind, DolWin 5, Hollandse Kust Zuid 3&4 and Empire Wind. Recently, 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 Gamesa Renewable Energy.
