Prysmian in $1bn German cable deal

Italian cabling giant Prysmian said it has secured an up-to €730m ($1bn) contract for offshore wind grid-connections in Germany.

The contract from network operator 50Hertz Transmission covers design, production and installation of cables for the West of Adlergrund offshore wind cluster in the Baltic Sea. It includes options for grid connections worth about €250m.

Prysmian said it will carry out multiple cabling projects to link planned wind farms 40km northeast of the island of Ruegen to the Lubmin substation, via a 90km submarine route and 3km on land.

Marine cable laying will be performed using the newly-upgraded Cable Enterprise DP 2 ship, said Prysmian, with production and installation to start in 2015.

The group said the deal is its fourteenth in offshore wind.

Prysmian is already involved in connections for the BorWin2, Helwin1, HelWin2, Sylwin1, DolWin3 and BorWin3 wind clusters in the German North Sea.
