New orders for Saipem and Prysmian for a total value of 850 million euros. In particular, Saipem announced that it has been awarded two new contracts for offshore wind farms, to be built in Scotland and Taiwan, for a total value of approximately 750 million euros , which represents over 15% of the orders acquired by the E&C Offshore division since the beginning of the year .

The first contract was awarded to Saipem by the French Edf Renewables for the construction of the NnG wind farm, located 15 kilometers off the east coast of the Scottish coast. It will develop over an area of ​​around 105 square km and will be able to generate around 450 megawatts of electricity and represents the first key project in the sector for the Italian company.

The second contract is to build the Formosa 2 offshore wind farm which will be developed by a partnership between Green Investment Group of the Macquarie fund and Swancor Renewable Energy, off Miaoli County, on the west coast of Taiwan. Construction work on the project will start at the beginning of 2020.

On the Prysmian front , the group, a world leader in the field of cable systems for energy and telecommunications, has won a contract worth over 100 million assigned by EDF Renewables for the realization of submarine and terrestrial cable systems to connect the offshore wind farm Neart na Gaoithe (NnG) to the Scottish hinterland electricity grid. Located 15.5 km off the coast of Fife, the NnG offshore wind farm will generate 450 MW of clean, renewable energy at competitive costs to serve around 375,000 Scottish families.

Prysmian will take care of the design, supply, installation and “turnkey” 360 ° testing of two high voltage alternating current three-pole export extruded submarine cables (HVAC – High Voltage Alternating Current) at 220 kV with single armature that will connect the park offshore wind farm in Thorntonloch, in the East Lothian region of Scotland.

The Italian group will also supply two 220 kV extruded terrestrial cable circuits that will connect the landfall to the Crystal Rig substation and two 400 kV extruded terrestrial cable circuits for the connection between the Crystal Rig substation and the Scottish substation. Power. The project will involve a 38 km underwater and a 12 km land section. The installation and completion of the project are planned for 2021.
