Two new inter-array projects awarded in Germany and Denmark

 

Focus on product innovation and installation capabilities

Milan, 10 March 2017. Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, has been awarded two new contracts for offshore wind farms in Germany (Merkur OWF) and Denmark (Horns Rev 3 OWF). Both assignments are for the development of inter-array cable systems to link among the turbines composing the off-shore wind farms, a growing market segment where Prysmian has been focusing on product innovation and new installation assets and capabilities.

For the Merkur offshore wind farm, Prysmian – awarded by Tideway B.V. – will be responsible for the design, engineering, manufacturing, testing and supply of approximately 90 km of 33 kV submarine inter-array cables and related accessories. Constructed by Merkur Offshore GmbH, the offshore wind farm – located in the German North Sea – will occupy an area of 47 square km and will generate a nominal active power output of approximately 400 MW.

The Horns Rev 3 project is located in the North Sea, approximately 25 km off the coast of Denmark and consists of 49 wind turbines with a total capacity of 406.7 MW, equivalent to the annual consumption of 425,000 Danish households. The contract awarded to Prysmian by VBMS B.V. – a subsidiary of Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. – involves the design and supply of more than 100 km of 33 kV submarine inter-array cables in various cross sections.

“These two new important awards confirm the market recognition of the significant investments made in our production capabilities for the specific inter-array market segment as well as in our improved project management skills aimed at offering global project solutions to our customers,” stated Alessandro Panico, Sales Team Manager – Offshore Wind, Prysmian Group.

In the product innovation field, Prysmian has recently introduced its new EPR insulated 66 kV inter-array cables – the first ready to go to market at this voltage level – that enable up to 15% cost reductions for offshore wind farms.
