The contracts involve the supply of over 1,000 km of high-voltage (HV) and low and medium-voltage (MV) cables. The transmission contract comprises 245 kV underground cables to be manufactured and supplied by Nexans France. The 33 kV and 15 kV distribution cables and the optical fiber cables will be supplied by the company’s base in Greece, while the accessories will be supplied by its Italian plant.

PEWCO will install the cables. Nexans will supply all required accessories as well as optical fiber cables (for substation automation, control and communications and monitoring of the cable temperature), as well as engineering services, technical assistance and training to PEWCO and GECOL.

Cable delivery and installation is expected to take place during 2012 and 2013.
