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.
