Italy’s Prysmian Group has been awarded a global contract by Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy to supply wind turbine towers, as well as nacelle cables and assemblies.
This award reaffirms a partnership between Siemens Gamesa and Prysmian in the wind industry and both companies said that it is an important step in increasing current and future growth opportunities.
The supply includes products and services from Prysmian Group’s wind portfolio of low voltage cables and assemblies for nacelle platforms, low voltage cables for towers and fully terminated medium voltage assemblies for towers, well renowned to be specifically designed and optimised to work with high torsion, mechanical and chemical resistance, as well as wide temperature fluctuations.
Prysmian said that the contract confirms its ambition to be “a 360-degree partner in the renewable power industry, able to supply from turbine tower and nacelle cables, to inter-array and export cables, installation, project management, as well as monitoring systems and solutions”.
Prysmian added that it would support the supply and delivery of products to Siemens Gamesa from manufacturing units located in Europe, Asia and North America.
So far this year, Prysmian has been awarded several key projects including Provence Grand Large in France, Vineyard Wind in the US, and the North Sea windfarms DolWin 5 and Hollandse Kust Zuid III and IV.
