Prysmian Group has been awarded a contract worth approximately € 30 million for the development of a turn-key submarine cable system by PGL (Provence Grand Large) for a 24MW floating offshore wind farm project located in South France.
The system to be supplied includes 3 km of submarine dynamic inter-array cables and 19 km of export cables for a total of 22 km, in addition to the land cables for a route of 9 km. All submarine cables will be produced in Drammen (Norway) and Vilanova (Spain), while the land cables will be manufactured in the Gron plant (France). All inter-array connections will be permanently monitored using Pry-Cam solutions for Partial Discharge (PD) measurement, Distributed Temperature (DTS) and Acoustic Sensing (DAS) to measure all key operating parameters of the whole cable system. Commissioning is scheduled in 2021, conditional upon the signing of the contract, which is expected in summer 2019. Provence Grand Large is part of EDF Renewables.
