SUPPLEMENT FEATURE CABLES & CONNECTORS CABLE CONTRACT FOR OFFSHORE


FLOATING WIND FARM Prysmian Group has been awarded a contract worth approximately €30m by PGL, a floating offshore wind farm project located in Southern France for the development of a turn-key submarine cable system


T


he system to be supplied includes three kilometres of submarine


dynamic inter-array cables and 19km of export cables for a total of 22km, in addition to the land cables for a route of nine kilometres. All submarine cables will be produced in


Prysmian Group’s centres in Drammen, Norway, and Vilanova, Spain, while the land cables will be manufactured in the Gron plant in France. “This is the first turnkey project for a


floating wind farm ever developed by the group, where we employ our innovative dynamic 66kV submarine cables with EPR insulation. This project is also the first pre-commercial floating offshore wind farm ever developed in France,” says Alessandro Panico, sales team manager - offshore wind, Prysmian Group.

“The EPR technology is a key enabling


factor for the development of dynamic cable solutions thanks to its unique mechanical and electrical properties,” concludes Panico. The PGL project also comprises a full


combined Pry-Cam permanent monitoring system, developed in close collaboration with the customer. All inter-array connections will be permanently monitored using Pry-Cam innovative solutions for partial discharge (PD) measurement, distributed temperature (DTS) and acoustic sensing (DAS) to measure all key operating parameters of the whole cable system. “This is the first example in the world


of a full combined permanent monitoring system for an offshore


windfarm,” says Roberto Candela, CEO of Prysmian Electronics. “We have worked in close collaboration with the customer to design a tailor-made monitoring solution that will allow to constantly monitor and guarantee the rating of the transmission system.” Commissioning is scheduled in 2021, conditional upon the signing of the contract, which is expected in summer 2019. Once completed, the floating offshore


wind farm will provide 24MW of clean, safe and reliable energy to more than 40,000 households in France, fostering the growing industry of renewable energy sources.
