Wind energy – U.S.A.
Prysmian Group announces the obtainment of the Notice to Proceed for the approximately €200 million contract to supply a submarine power cable system for the Vineyard Wind 1 offshore wind farm.
Under the contract awarded in 2019, by Vineyard Wind, LLC, a US offshore wind development owned by funds of Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and by Avangrid Renewables (part of the Iberdrola Group), Prysmian Group will develop a submarine power cable system project which will deliver clean energy to the mainland power grid.
The Group is responsible for the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of an HVAC (High Voltage Alternating Current) cable system composed of two 220 kV three-core cables utilising extruded XLPE insulation.
The project requires a total of 134 km of power cables. The submarine cables will be produced in Prysmian Group’s centres of excellence for the production of submarine cables in Pikkala, Finland, and Arco Felice, Italy.
Installation operations will be performed by Prysmian Group’s state-of-the-art cable laying vessels Cable Enterprise and Ulisse.
Delivery and commissioning of the project are scheduled for Q4 2023.
