Milan, 14 October 2016. Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, has been awarded a contract – worth up to 13 M euro – by Tideway B.V. for the Rentel offshore wind farm project.

It will consist of 42 Siemens D7 type wind turbines and will produce nearly 309 MW at its peak, supplying CO2 friendly electricity to 285.000 households.

The cables will be produced in the Prysmian facility in Drammen, Norway, one of the Group’s centres of excellence for submarine cables. The cables are planned to be delivered in summer 2017, whilst the termination works are scheduled to be completed in Spring 2018.
