Milan-based Prysmian Group will supply cables to NNB Generation Company Limited, a subsidiary of EDF Energy, for the two pressurised water reactors (EPRs) at the Hinkley Point C NPP.
The agreement, worth more than €20 million ($24m), includes a total of more than 2,000 km of Medium Voltage, Low Voltage, Instrumentation and Control cables specifically designed for nuclear applications and in compliance with CPR regulations for fire rating.
The cables will be manufactured in the Group’s plant in Paron, France, the Group’s excellence centre for the development of nuclear cables. Deliveries are planned to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Prysmian nuclear cables have been specially developed to withstand the stress of harsh and challenging environments inside nuclear power plants and rely on dedicated certifications as well as Nuclear Quality Assurance supervision. “We are very proud to take part in the increasingly strategic transformation of the power industry”, stated Francesco Fanciulli, Prysmian Group Business Energy Executive Vice President. “We pursue business opportunities where the competitive edges of our value-added offer can be fully exploited, offering competent project management, best-in-class service to partners and fully compliant products”, he added.
