- Operations & Maintenance
Prysmian Group announced that the high voltage power cable link between Sicily and Calabria has been handed over to its customer Terna Spa Rete Elettrica Nazionale.
“We are proud to provide the best technology and know-how owned by our Group, worldwide leader in this sector, for such a strategic link,” said Valerio Battista Prysmian CEO. “The cable link handed over to Terna was engineered and produced in the plant located in Arco Felice, near Naples.”
Prysmian developed and produced a double-circuit 380 kV HVAC (high voltage alternate current) land and submarine cable system installed along a total route of approximately 44 km – of which 38 km running under water between the power stations of Villafranca Tirrena in Sicily and Scilla in Calabria.
Prysmian installed the submarine cable with its cable ship Giulio Verne.
