Prysmian Group has announced the finalisation of the contract agreement with RWE Renewables for the development of the turn-key high voltage submarine and land export cable connection worth over €200 million for the 1.4GW Sofia Offshore Wind Farm project.
Prysmian Group will be responsible for the design, supply, installation and commissioning of an HVDC symmetrical monopole cable system that will connect Sofia’s offshore converter station with the onshore converter station in Teesside. The project involves more than 440 km of ±320 kV submarine export cables with XLPE insulation, and 15 km of ±320 kV land cables with P-Laser insulation. The offshore cable operations will be performed using the Leonardo da Vinci, Prysmian’s new cable laying vessel. Commissioning of the project is scheduled by the end of 2026.
