Prysmian wins Belgian offshore windfarm contract

Italian cable company Prysmian has been awarded a €13m contract for an offshore windfarm being built in the Belgian North Sea.

The Rentel offshore windfarm is located around 34 km from the port of Zeebrugge and 40 km from Oostende off the Belgian coast.

It will consist of 42 Siemens D7-type wind turbines and will produce nearly 309 MW at its peak.

Prysmian will be responsible for the design, manufacture and supply of 33 kV submarine cables in various cross-sections, together with the related cable accessories. It will also provide the offshore cable termination and testing services.

The cables will be produced in Prysmian’s facility in Drammen, Norway, and are set to be delivered next summer, with the termination works scheduled to be completed in spring 2018.
