Prysmian Group has completed cable laying phase at the 350MW Wikinger offshore wind farm in the Germany.

The company is currently carrying out termination and testing works for the project in German Baltic Sea.

In 2015, Prysmian had secured €60m contract from Iberdrola Renovables Offshore Deutschland to provide and install inter-array cables within the wind facility.

Under the deal, Prysmian had taken the responsibility for the design, manufacture, installation, burial, termination and testing of 80 km of 33 kV submarine cables with different cross-sections to link 70 wind turbines and offshore substation.

Prysmian, which commenced the work in the last year, manufactured cables used in the project at its Drammen’s facility in Norway.

Prysmian Group energy projects SVP Massimo Battaini said: “This milestone, which is quite uncommon in the offshore wind market, highlights the Group’s capabilities in managing turnkey inter-array contracts and re-affirms the strong focus Prysmian has in the offshore wind market.

“We have been heavily investing in developing our project execution and cable installation capabilities. We can now count on new assets, such as our cable barge, Ulisse, for shallow water installation as well as new jetting and cable protection machines.”

Last year, the company also secured contract to supply provide inter-array cables for the Rentel offshore wind farm located in Belgian North.

In addition, the firm has supplied turnkey HVAC cable systems for different offshore wind farms in the German North Sea.
