[Cable Network News] German power grid company TenneT Holding BV and TransnetBW GmbH have awarded an underground cable supply contract for the SuedLink wind power project in Germany, with a total value of 2 billion euros (2.26 billion US dollars).
Two transmission system operators (TSOs) stated that they have decided to use plastic insulated underground DC cables with a voltage of 525 kV in the project. Leading European cable manufacturers Ankite Cable and Prysmian subsidiary have won the above cable orders.
According to the contract, NKT GmbH & Co KG, a subsidiary of Ankete Group, will deliver and install the XLPE high voltage direct current (HVDC) land cable system. The total contract price exceeds 1 billion euros and the line length is approximately 750 kilometers. It is expected to start production at its factories in Cologne, Germany and Karlskrona, Sweden in early 2022.
Prysmian PowerLink Srl will also design, manufacture, supply, lay, combine, test and commission a 2 GW underground cable system from northern Germany to southern Germany as part of an order worth more than 800 million euros. The 700-kilometer transmission line will connect Wilster in Schleswig-Holstein to the northwest of Hamburg.
The entire 10 billion euro SuedLink will transport wind power from northern Germany to southern Bavaria and Baden-Wurttemberg. The two grid operators operate separately, with TenneT responsible for the north and TransnetBW for the southern part of the cable connection.
According to the plan, the entire project should be completed in 2026.
