Prysmian has announced
the successful Factory
Acceptance Test and delivery
of the Feltoflex-RC cable system
for the DolWin3 project.
In securing a contract worth around €250 million for a High Voltage Direct Current submarine interconnector that will link Denmark and the Netherlands, Prysmian Group is both doing valuable commercial work and helping to enable the integration of renewable energy grids across Europe. The project was awarded by TenneT TSO B.V. and Energinet.dk SOV, the operators of the Dutch and of the Danish power transmission grids, respectively. The COBRA (COpenhagen BRussels Amsterdam) cable will enhance the electricity grids of both countries, as it will make Dutch power capacity structurally available to Denmark and vice versa, increasing the security of supply and enabling the further integration of renewable energy into the electricity grids. The COBRAcable interconnector will therefore contribute to the realisation of a sustainable international energy landscape, a key aim of the European Union, which is supporting the project through the EEPR (European Energy Programme for Recovery). The connection will be constructed using High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) technology, which minimises transmission losses over the long distances involved.
Prysmian Group presented its state-of-theart range of products and services for the wind power industry at the 2015 European Wind Energy Association Annual Event in Paris. As part of its business strategy Prysmian keeps on strengthening its commitment to the added-value market of wind energy and participated to the EWEA Event 2015 with an expanded portfolio of products and services that included: AC and DC power transmission submarine cable systems and advanced turbine cabling solutions. The latter boast a high resistance to abrasion, UV radiations, corrosion, bending and torsion stress, for increased efficiency, reliability and safety, and are specifically designed to meet highly demanding conditions of plants and installation areas, including the Group’s new Feltoflex HV cable system for moveable interconnection between platforms.
