Italian cable specialist company Prysmian Group will provide submarine power cable links for offshore wind farms in France. Valued at more than €300M the award by RTE (Réseau de Transport d'Electricité) is the first contract ever for connecting offshore wind electricity to the French grid.

The three projects, Fécamp, Calvados and Saint Nazaire, are to be individually triggered during the period of the contract. These projects are the first ever grid access connections developed by RTE to transmit renewable energy generated by offshore wind farms to thousands of businesses and homes.

Prysmian will be responsible for the design, supply, installation, testing and commissioning of two HV export power cable links for each of the three offshore wind farms covering both the submarine and land routes to connect Fécamp, Calvados and St Nazaire to the French network. The submarine cable links, which consist of High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) 220 kV three-core cables with XLPE insulation and single wire armouring, will connect the offshore wind parks being developed by Eolien Maritime France (EMF).

The submarine cables will be produced in the Group’s centres of excellence in Arco Felice, Italy and Pikkala, Finland. The cables for the land sections will be manufactured in Gron, France. Delivery of the cables is expected during the period 2018 to 2020, dependent on the individual scheduling of the wind farms, with commissioning between 2019 and 2022. For the marine installation, Prysmian intend to use its own Cable Enterprise, a DP 2 vessel for cable laying activities.
