Prysmian will deliver a fully qualified ±525 kV high voltage DC cable system

Prysmian Group has been awarded a contract by Amprion GmbH, the German grid operator, for the A-Nord underground cable connection, part of the 2 GW German Corridor “A” electricity transmission project. Worth over €500 million, Prysmian is to design, manufacture, supply, lay, joint, test and commission a 1 GW underground cable system along the entire Northern route of this German Corridor.

Prysmian will deliver a fully qualified ±525 kV high voltage DC (Direct Current) cable system consisting of copper cables, insulated with their own proprietary P-Laser technology, complete with a separate insulated metallic return cable. The Group will provide all related accessories and integrated PRY-CAM monitoring system, carrying out the design and installation work with a dedicated local project engineering and management team. The route, with a total length of around 300 km, runs from Emden in Lower Saxony to Osterath in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Construction of the HVDC system is scheduled to commence within 2023.

P-Laser, Prysmian’s fully recyclable, eco-friendly high-performance cable technology based on HPTE (High Performance Thermoplastic Elastomer), is suited for the highest voltage levels, being able to deliver enhanced thermal performance, high intrinsic reliability and higher environmental credentials compared to more conventional technologies.
