Prysmian has finalised three contracts with Amprion for two offshore grid connection systems, BalWin1 and BalWin2, and the underground cable project DC34. The contracts, valued at around €5 billion, follow Prysmian's selection as the preferred bidder in August 2023.

The contract includes approximately 4,400 km of ±525 kV HVDC cables and DMR (Dedicated Metallic Return) cables, comprising around 3,400 km of land cables and 1,000 km of submarine cables.

BalWin1 and BalWin2 will each transmit up to 2 GW of offshore wind energy, generated in areas 9 and 10 of the German North Sea, to the grid connection points. Additionally, DC34, part of the Rhein-Main-Link, will connect the substation in Lower Saxony to a second substation in the federal state of Hesse, facilitating the transmission of up to 2 GW of wind energy to consumers in the Rhine-Main metropolitan area. These three projects are integral to Germany's broader plan to install 70 GW of offshore wind energy by 2045.
