Supply, Installation Contracts Awarded for Princess Elizabeth Island


A consortium consisting of DEME and Hellenic Cables has been awarded a contract for the supply and installation of high-voltage subsea cables at the Princess Elisabeth Island project in the Belgian North Sea.

At the same time, a joint effort that includes LS Cable & System and Jan De Nul Group won a contract to supply, install and test three 220 kV alternating current cables for the same project. 

The energy island is being developed by grid operator Elia and constructed by a Jan De Nul joint venture.

“With this new project, we have confirmed our leading position in the subsea power cable market,” says Luc Vandenbulcke, DEME Group CEO. “We are currently working on the largest inter-array cabling project for Dogger Bank Wind Farm, the biggest wind farm in the world. And earlier this year, we won major contracts for IJmuiden Ver Alpha and Nederwiek 1. Our expertise in cable installation, dredging, rock dumping and marine infrastructure works combined with our modern and versatile fleet offers our customers an efficient, integrated solution.” This is how we are supporting the energy transition and helping countries achieve their climate goals.””

The cables, set to reach 165 km, will be produced at the Hellenic Cables factory in Greece, with transport and installation campaign planned for 2027.
