Prysmian, a world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, has announced the successful completion of the Gruissan/EOLMED floating offshore wind farm project in France. Prysmian had secured this project in 2021 with a contract signed with the French TSO RTE (Réseau de Transport d'Électricité) for the Engineering, Procurement, Construction and Installation (EPCI) of an export submarine power cable system.

Prysmian was responsible for the design, supply, installation, termination, testing, and commissioning of a 66 kV static three-core export submarine cable with EPR insulation for a total of 23 km and a 66 kV dynamic submarine export tail with EPR insulation connecting the onshore grid to the floating electrical hub of EOLMED’s 30 MW offshore floating wind farm (currently under construction).

With this high-profile engineering project and second EPCI turnkey project for dynamic cable systems, Prysmian has further consolidated its position in the floating offshore wind farm market, deploying its knowledge, experience, and capability to provide innovative dynamic cable systems solutions that allow to build offshore wind farms in deeper water areas.

“With this project, which follows the Provence Grand Large (PGL) floating offshore wind farm, Prysmian demonstrates once again its leading position in the market and the validity of its know-how and technologies in the development of submarine cables and systems to support smarter and greener power grids worldwide,” commented Alberto Boffelli, COO Transmission, Prysmian.
