The Group is organised in a matrix structure by reference market and business unit, identifying three macro-areas of activity.
Comprising business segments that offer a complete and innovative portfolio of products designed to satisfy the many needs of the markets served. This macro-area is organised as follows: Energy & Infrastructure, which includes Trade & Installers, Power Distribution and Overhead Transmission Lines, and Industrial & Network Components, which includes Oil & Gas, Elevators, Automotive, Network Components, Specialties & OEM (serving in turn the following sectors: Cranes, Mining, Railways, Rolling Stock, Marine and Renewables - cables for the solar energy industry and for the operation and connection of wind turbines) and Electronics (Asset Monitoring Solutions).
Comprising high-tech and high value-added businesses focused on the design, production and customisation of HV and EHV cabling systems for terrestrial and submarine applications. The Group develops pioneering “turnkey” submarine cable systems for installation at depths of up to 3,000 metres, assisted by its cablelaying fleet comprising the Giulio Verne, the Cable Enterprise and the Ulisse (as well as the Leonardo da Vinci, which will become operational in 2021). Prysmian Group also offers advanced services for terrestrial and submarine interconnections between various countries and between offshore wind farms and the mainland, used for both the generation and distribution of electricity.
Comprising businesses devoted to making the cabling systems and connectivity products used in TLC networks. The product portfolio includes optical fibre, optical cables, connectivity components and accessories, OPGW (Optical Ground Wire) and copper cables. The Group is also among the leaders in the production of optical fibre - the essential component of all types of optical cables. A wide range of optical fibres is designed and made using proprietary technology to cater to the broadest possible spectrum of customer applications: single-mode, multimode and specialty fibres. In both cables and connectivity, the Group focuses on the design of products that provided greater density in a smaller diameter, with ease of use and optimal fibre management.
