Prysmian wins $546m German link cable corridor project

PARIS, May 5, 2020

Prysmian Group, a world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, has been awarded a €500 million ($546.2 million) contract by TenneT TSO, the Dutch-German grid operator, for the SuedOstLink project in Germany, one of the longest HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) underground cable connection. 
As per the deal, Prysmian will be designing, manufacturing, supplying, laying, testing and commissioning of a 2GW underground cable system through the TenneT region of this first German Corridor.
On the big win, Prysmian Group CEO Valerio Battista said: "This prestigious award confirms our ambition to play a strategic role in the shift towards a low-carbon economy and to drive the energy transition forwards with smarter, more reliable and more sustainable solutions."
The route, with a length of over 250 km, starts at the Southern Germany connection point at Isar, close to Landshut in Bavaria. 
Prysmian will provide all related accessories, as well as an integrated PRY-CAM monitoring system, noted Battista. 
"It gives us great satisfaction to be involved in the development of this vital infrastructure project and to set this milestone in the upgrading of the EU power transmission grid," he added. 
Group EVP Projects BU Hakan Ozmen said: "Our innovative and eco-friendly solutions are supporting Germany’s energy transition in a sustainable way, with the development of more capable underground cables able to cover longer distances with an increasing level of power transmission, to carry more energy from the North of the country, where renewable energy is being generated, to more southerly regions, where it is required."
A high-quality and efficient installation shall be assured with optimised long length solutions, extending beyond 2 km, overseen by a strong and dedicated local project engineering and management team. Project completion is planned in early 2026, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
