Prysmian wins Borselle contract

PrysmianPrysmian Group has been awarded a contract by Van Oord Offshore Wind B.V. for the development of a submarine inter–array cables system for Borssele III & IV offshore wind farms.

Prysmian will be responsible for the design, manufacture, supply and testing of around 175km of 66kV three core cables with XLPE insulation of various cross – section and all related accessories for
Borssele III & IV wind farms.

Borssele III & IV wind farms are part of the wide Borssele Wind Farm Zone located near the southern border of the Dutch Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), approximately 25km from the shore, and will have a total installed capacity of 731.5 MW.

“This award confirms our leading role in the development of offshore wind farms in Europe and in the growing inter-array market as well as of our superior project management skills offering customised, high-performance solutions to our customers”
said Hakan Ozmen, EVP Projects at Prysmian Group.

This project will provide sustainable and CO2 friendly electricity to more than 800,000 households in The Netherlands and it is part of a wider energy plan supported by Dutch government for the development of an energy mix aimed to achieve 16% of total generated electricity in renewable energy by 2023.

All cables will be produced in Prysmian’s centre in Pikkala, Finland. The cables are due to be delivered early 2020.

The recent acquisition of General Cables means Prysmian now has additional production facilities in Nordenham, Germany.
