Dolwin5 grid connection

Industry Database

Italy’s Prysmian Group has been awarded a major grid connection project worth in region of €140 million by the Dutch-German grid operator TenneT which will enable the connection of multiple offshore wind farms to the German grid.

“The Dolwin5 project continues our valued long relationship with the major TSO TenneT and demonstrates our ability to provide tailor-made submarine cable solutions for challenging projects, providing the offshore infrastructure needed to support the growth of clean energy in Northern Europe.” stated Hakan Ozmen, EVP Projects, Prysmian Group.

The project involves the supply, installation and commissioning of a High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) 320 kV XLPE-insulated submarine and land power cable connection, with a transmission capacity of 900MW, as well as the associated fibre optic cable system, comprising a land route of 30km and a subsea route of 100km. The turnkey connections will link the offshore converter platform DolWin epsilon, located approximately 100km offshore in the German North Sea, to the mainland Emden/Ost converter station, with the purpose of transmitting the generated renewable energy into the German grid.

This project comes at a very important time for Prysmian, recognising also the recent award of a €200 million project by Vineyard Wind, LLC, a US offshore wind development company, affirming the Group’s deep involvement in the development of the North American offshore wind segment.
