SÜDKABEL is proud to have delivered and handed over an important 380 kV underground cable system for TenneT: The Wilhelmshaven-Conneforde (“WiCo”) project will transport increased feed-in capacity, primarily from renewable energies and from the power plants in the Wilhelmshaven region, to the Conneforde grid node. For TenneT, the Wilhelmshaven-Conneforde project was an three-phase AC pilot project for partial underground cabling in accordance with Section 4 of the Federal Requirements Plan Act (Bundesbedarfsplangesetz).
After a project duration of approx. 2 years for the handling of this turnkey project with the delivery of extruded underground cables for the German transmission network, Südkabel has underlined the good long-term partnership with TenneT.
TenneT, the largest European transmission system operator, is a key customer for SÜDKABEL for the supply of extra-high voltage cable systems. SÜDKABEL is currently working on further 380 kV underground cable projects with TenneT and is thus making a significant contribution to the expansion of the grid as part of the Energiewende.
SÜDKABEL, one of the global pioneers in cable system technology for more than 120 years with its production location in Mannheim, Germany , has designed, supplied, installed and successfully commissioned a significant share of the 380 kV cables with the corresponding accessories on a turnkey basis. SÜDKABEL benefits from almost 25 years of experience in developing, supplying and installing operational 380 kV XLPE-insulated cable systems.
