(businesspress24) - Milan, 11 December 2017 - Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, celebrates the 50th anniversary of the taking into operation of the HVDC submarine cable system built for the SA.CO.I. interconnection linking Sardinia


At the time of construction, the SA.CO.I. submarine power link was a milestone both in terms of installed capacity, with 300 MW and, at 450 metres, the marine depth reached. The 120 km of 200 kV submarine cable that connects Sulcis in Sardinia with Corsica and Tuscany were manufactured at the Arco Felice (Naples) plant, one of the Group

In more recent years significant improvements have been achieved in the technical evolution of HVDC submarine cables, with Prysmian committed to confirming and reinforcing its leadership in this sector. Amongst the most recent technological achievements are the launch of the new 700 kV PPL and 600 kV XLPE HVDC cable systems, enabling increases of up to 15% in power transmission capacity and higher grid reliability, as well as the introduction of the P-Laser 600 kV cable technology onto the market, reducing costs by up to 30% per MW transmitted.
