Prysmian, Amprion Ink €5B Deal for BalWin Grid Connection Systems


Prysmian has finalized three contracts, worth approximately €5 billion in total, with Amprion for BalWin1 and BalWin2 offshore grid connection systems, as well as the underground cable project DC34. 

The contracts follow the selection of the company as preferred bidder in August.

This deal is the largest in value ever awarded to Prysmian and includes approximately 4,400 km of HVDC and DMR cables, of which around 3,400 km are land cables and 1,000 km are submarine cables.

“The three contracts with Amprion are an important milestone for Prysmian as they underline once again the trusting cooperation between the two companies,” says Hakan Ozmen, EVP for Prysmian’s Transmission Division. “We are glad to actively contribute as a reliable partner to the energy transition.”

The three projects are set to support the transmission of energy generated in the North Sea to consumers in the Western and Southern regions of Germany, with BalWin1 and BalWin2 transmitting up to 2 GW of offshore energy each. DC34, as part of the Rhein-Main-Link, will connect the substation in Lower Saxony to a second substation in the federal state of Hesse to transmit up to 2 GW of wind energy to consumers in the Rhine-Main metropolitan area.
