Hellenic Cable to supply 150 kV power cable for 170 km of Greece project

Hellenic Cables has signed a contract to provide the cable for a Greek project that will provide a new electrical interconnection for seven Greek islands.

A press release said that the order from Greece’s Independent Power Transmission Operator (IPTO), which oversees the country’s supply of electricity, calls for the design, manufacturing, and supply of 150 kV high-voltage onshore and offshore cables as well as their accessories, the installation, laying, and protection of the onshore and offshore cables, the implementation of necessary joints and terminations as well as the final tests after installation.

The project will integrate Milos and Serifos into the continental Electricity Transmission System, part of the fourth and final phase of the Cyclades interconnection. Scheduled to be in operation in a little more than two years, the new interconnection will significantly upgrade the quality of electricity supply to seven more directly and indirectly interconnected islands of the Cyclades (Folegandros, Milos, Serifos, Ios, Kimolos, Sifnos, and Kythnos). It will also allow the gradual withdrawal of polluting and aging power plants.

The cables will be manufactured at the Corinth plant of Hellenic Cables.
