Cyclades interconnector contract

Industry Database

Prysmian Group, an Italian energy and telecom cable systems specialist, has been awarded a new contract worth approximately €21 million by IPTO (the Transmission System Operator of the Greek electricity system), for two interconnections between the Cyclades islands, Greece.

The project involves the design, supply and installation, as well as the related land civil work of two turnkey High Voltage Alternating Current (HVAC) cable systems designed to transmit a power of 200MVA and consisting of 150kV three core cables with XLPE insulation and double wire armouring and associated fibre optic cable system along a total route of over 18km (16,5km submarine and 2km land) for the interconnection between the four landfalls (Evia – Andros and Andros – Tinos). The submarine cable system will increase and ensure robust, reliable and sustainable power transmission system between the Cyclades islands.

The maximum water depth expected will be in the range of 550m in the link between the islands of Evia and Andros.

Marine cable laying activities will be performed by the Group’s Giulio Verne cable-laying vessel. Production of both submarine and land cables will be carried out during 2018-2019. Delivery and commissioning is scheduled for Q3 2019.
