Two new orders from Terna Rete Italia for the supply of 150kV cables over a two-year period
Prysmian has been awarded two new contracts by Terna Rete Italia, a Terna Group company that deals with the operation, maintenance and development of the Italian national power transmission network, in a way respectful of the environment and local communities.
Prysmian was allocated the highest-value lot in the tender launched to award a framework contract for the supply of 150kV cables over a two-year period, with an option to renew for a third year. This has reinforced the Group’s position both as a market leader and as a key supplier of Terna.
The Group will also implement the Palo del Colle project, in the Puglia region, consisting in the provision of a new 150kV buried cable connection from the Palo del Colle Power Station to the Bari Power Station known as “Bari Termica”. The work is necessary to meet the increasingly higher domestic and industrial demand for electricity in the province of Bari. The power line will consist of a set of three XLPE insulated single-core cables totalling 35km of cable produced at the Pignataro Maggiore plant (Caserta), for a value of about €7 million.
Delivery of the commissioned system for the Palo del Colle project, in particular, is scheduled for the first quarter of 2017.
“These new contracts reaffirm Prysmian’s commitment and capability to support the development of large transmission networks and highlight the confidence that such a long-standing customer and partner as Terna has in the Group’s deep technological expertise, and in the highly reliable services and products that we provide,” stated Borjan Sehovac, Prysmian Group HV Business Director.
