Cenergy Holdings announces that Hellenic Cables, its cables segment, signed a contract with Elia Asset NV/SA, as a consortium with DEME, for the engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) of high voltage submarine power cables. This significant project is part of the ambitious Princess Elisabeth Island initiative to enhance Belgium’s renewable energy infrastructure.  For Hellenic Cables and DEME, this is a landmark award, as it follows the successful execution of MOG I for Elia that the two companies were involved a few years ago.

The project provides for Hellenic Cables delivering three 220kV offshore export cable systems totaling 165km in length.  These cables will connect the transition jointing pit on the beach to the transition jointing area on the artificial energy island within the Princess Elisabeth windfarm area.  Under the contract, Hellenic Cables will be responsible for the engineering, design, manufacturing, and supply of 220kV HVAC submarine cables, as well as accessories, jointing on site, termination and testing, commissioning and maintenance of the export cable system.

The three 220kV offshore export cables are planned to be manufactured in 2026 and 2027 and the installation is expected to be finalized in 2027.  The cables will be manufactured at Hellenic Cables’ vertically integrated state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Corinth, Greece.

Alexis Alexiou, CEO of Cenergy Holdings, stated: “Following the successful delivery of MOG1 some years ago, we are delighted to collaborate once again with ELIA, on this groundbreaking project.  Our involvement in the Princess Elizabeth Island project not only reinforces our commitment to advancing renewable energy infrastructure but also showcases our ability to deliver complex and innovative solutions on a global scale.  We look forward to executing the project safely and contribute to Belgium’s transition to a more sustainable energy future.”
