Recently Prysmian Group has met significant technological challenges, far exceeding what has been achieved so far in similar international projects. These are mainly the length and the maximum installation depth that have been faced with the development of an innovative cable solution with a synthetic armour together with all the necessary improvements on accessories and installation methodologies for a safe and reliable deployment of the link.
The Crete-Peloponnese link has been installed successfully in 2020 and represents most powerful 3 core design cable transporting 200 MW, installed at the maximum depth of 1000 m.
In addition in November 2021, Prysmian Group was awarded the Mediterranean Thyrrenian Link Electricity Corridor, a 1,500 km cable system to support the power exchange among Sardinia, Sicily and Campania consisting of 500 kV HVDC links. The innovative aramidic armouring recently developed by Prysmian Group and the new vessel Leonardo da Vinci will enable the installation and maintenance of the Tyrrhenian Link at a water depth of 2,000 metres, the deepest ever reached with a power cable.
