Prysmian Secures A Project For Submarine Power Cable Links In The Venetian Lagoon

The Group also built the previous high voltage submarine cable link connecting Venice, Murano and Mestre

Milan, 27 June 2017 - Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, announces that Terna Rete Italia has confirmed a series of additional works — originally included as an option — to be added to the Venetian Lagoon submarine power cable links project, a contract awarded to the Group last year following a European bid.

These new works are worth approximately €20 million and involve the completion of the project aimed at strengthening the high voltage power transmission grid in the Venice area. The project includes a 6 km link, made up of High Voltage Alternate Current (HVAC) 132kV cables.

The cables will be produced in the Arco Felice plant, near Naples. Commissioning is scheduled in 2018.
