Prysmian Successfully Completes 30 MW EOLMED Floating Offshore Wind Farm Export Cable in France

Prysmian, a global leader in energy and telecom cable systems, has announced the successful completion of the Gruissan/EOLMED floating offshore wind farm project in France. The project, initiated in 2021, involved a contract with the French Transmission System Operator (TSO) RTE (Réseau de Transport d’Électricité) for the Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation (EPCI) of an export submarine power cable system.

The Gruissan/EOLMED project includes a 66 kV static three-core export submarine cable with Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) insulation spanning 23 km, along with a 66 kV dynamic submarine export tail. This cable connects the onshore grid to the floating electrical hub of EOLMED’s 30 MW offshore floating wind farm, which is currently under construction.

Prysmian’s responsibilities encompassed the design, supply, installation, termination, testing, and commissioning of the cable system. This successful project marks Prysmian’s second EPCI turnkey project for dynamic cable systems, reinforcing its leading position in the floating offshore wind farm market. The company’s innovative dynamic cable systems are essential for developing offshore wind farms in deeper waters.

Alberto Boffelli, COO of Transmission at Prysmian, stated, “With this project, which follows the Provence Grand Large (PGL) floating offshore wind farm, Prysmian demonstrates once again its leading position in the market and the validity of its know-how and technologies in the development of submarine cables and systems to support smarter and greener power grids worldwide.”
