Prysmian Bolsters Offshore Cable Production

Posted by Eric Haun

Responding to an increased demand for European offshore wind farms, energy and telecom cable systems manufacturer Prysmian Group has expanded capability at its U.K. production facility in Wrexham to manufacture both 33 kV and 66 kV submarine cable cores used for the inter-array cable connections in offshore wind farms. The new product line will enable the linking and collecting of power produced by offshore wind turbines before onward transmission to the onshore grid.
Llyr Roberts, CEO Prysmian UK comments "Our Wrexham factory has been manufacturing the highest quality cables for decades and we are delighted to be directing this depth of experience and know-how to products that will further grow the business, sustain and create local jobs and provide UK manufactured cables for the next generation of U.K. and European offshore wind farms."
In the U.K., Prysmian already has an established and strong presence serving the offshore wind energy sector. Alongside a dedicated submarine operations and engineering office in Chelmsford, Prysmian operates an offshore logistics and services base in Middlesbrough, which serves as a centre of excellence offering maintenance, repair and cable storage services for all offshore cabling.
It is also in Middlesbrough where the Prysmian cable laying vessel, Cable Enterprise, is based. The site is also home to an extensive range of cable burial and protection equipment, underpinning the EPCI capability of Prysmian to execute submarine cable projects.
