Italy’s Prysmian Group has clinched two big contracts to supply and install cables for German offshore wind farms.

The shipowner said it will provide around 1,000 km of subsea and land cables for Amprion Offshore’s Dolwin4 and Borwin4 projects.

The deals are worth more than €800m ($798m) in total, including options for the charterer.

Prysmian is also designing the cables for the North Sea developments.

“Prysmian will install the subsea cables with a variety of state-of-the-art vessels, ensuring lowest possible environmental impact,” it said.

Delivery and commissioning for both projects is scheduled for 2028.

Prysmian controls two cable-layers but has not specified whether it will need extra new or chartered tonnage for the contracts.

DolWin4 and BorWin4 will generate a combined 1.8 GW.

The subsea cables will be produced in Finland and Italy.

Consolidating a transition role

They will run from the offshore platforms via the national park Niedersachsisches Wattenmeer, crossing the island of Norderney, before being connected to the onshore cables close to Hilgenriedersiel.

This is Prysmian’s first 320-kV subsea project with Amprion Offshore.

The company said it shows how it is consolidating its prominent role as a reliable partner in supporting Germany’s energy transition, being involved in major green energy infrastructure projects.

“We are honoured to work with Amprion to develop its first offshore wind project,” said Hakan Ozmen, executive vice president of projects at Prysmian.
