Hellenic Cables-Hellenic Cables celebrates the inauguration of Kafireas wind farms

Athens, November 6th 2019

Hellenic Cables, the leading provider of turnkey cable solutions for the wind industry, has supplied Enel Green Power with 45 km of 150 kV high-voltage submarine cable that is transferring to mainland Greece the energy produced by Enel Green Power’s 154 MW Kafireas wind farms complex, located in the island of Evia.

The cable, operational since August 2019, was designed, manufactured and tested at Hellenic Cables’ integrated, submarine cables plant in Corinth, Greece. In addition, as main contractor for this turnkey project, Hellenic Cables also successfully performed installation, protection and burial of the submarine cable under the seabed, transition joints between submarine and land cables as well as cabling and terminations on Evia landing site.

Mr. Alexis Alexiou, Hellenic Cables’ General Manager, stated: “It has been an honor to be part of Kafireas. The successful delivery and execution of this project is proof of our commitment to provide competitive and high-quality solutions for the wind industry globally”.

The Company is currently expanding its inter-array cables production capacity in its Corinth plant to supply a wide range of cables to offshore wind developers worldwide.
