Nexans wins contracts to supply two TSOs

French cable manufacturer Nexans has been awarded contracts to supply two cable systems to transmission system operators (TSOs) in Italy and Germany.

The company will supply 380 kVà‚ cable systems to Terna of Italy and Amprion of Germany in deals worth $26m in total.
à‚ à‚ 
Terna Reteà‚ Italia’s new 380 kV project is aimed at improving the quality of theà‚ electricity network serving South-Eastern Sicily, especially as electricity productionà‚ in this area increases bothà‚ through conventional and renewable sources. Nexans will design, supply, install and test two major EHV underground cable circuits connectingà‚ the Priolo and Melilli power stations in theà‚ province of Siracusa.
à‚ 
As part of theà‚ German Power Grid Expansion Act (EnLAG), which promotes the partialà‚ undergrounding of overhead lines in residential areas, Amprion is building aà‚ new 380 kV lineà‚ connecting substations in Wesel on Borken, Steinfurt and Lingenà‚ to Meppen in Emsland. Nexans will design, supply, install and test the entireà‚ cable system for the construction of the firstà‚ pilot section of partialà‚ undergrounding.
à‚ 
“These 2 important European projectsà‚ demonstrate once again our technical leadership in EHV, especially as part ofà‚ partial underground solutions,” says Dirk Steinbrink, Nexans’ Executiveà‚ Vice President High Voltage & Underwater Cables Business Group.
à‚ 
The cables will be manufactured in the Nexans High Voltage factory inà‚ Charleroi (Belgium), while the accessories will be produced in Cossonayà‚ (Switzerland).
