The three-core 66 kV EPR-insulated ‘wet-design’ cable system can feature either aluminium or copper conductors and comes with integrated optical elements that include factory and field joints, as well as plug-in terminations (using our proprietary Click-FitTM technology).
How? Advanced EPR insulation. This material performs to the highest standards when in direct contact with water, whilst boasting the cost effectiveness of a lighter, lead-free design.
A reputation for world-first project wins
Why are we consistently chosen for some of the biggest projects in the world? Our unparalleled expertise, unmatched production capacity and state-of-the-art installation capabilities. We continue to demonstrate our commitment to supporting smarter and greener power grids worldwide.
In 2010, we won the contract for the Borwin2 project, which set a number of milestones in the industry. Linking two offshore wind farms in the North Sea to mainland Germany, it was the first commercial ± 300 kV DC cable project to use extruded technology (the highest direct current voltage level ever reached at that point), the first 800 MW connection to offshore wind parks and the largest VSC system with a capacity of 800 MW.
Sylwin1 went even further, setting new technological milestones. The project involved a longer DC cable connection and is the highest-ever rated system for VSC technology with a power rating of 864 MW operating at the highest commercially available voltage level of ± 320 kV DC.
Prysmian was responsible for the complete supply, installation and commissioning of submarine and land cable connections as part of a larger contract awarded to the consortium of Prysmian and Siemens Energy.
