Prysmian Group Announces Finalization of a Contract with SOO Green HVDC Link

Prysmian Group, world leader in the energy and telecom cable systems industry, announces today—following the announcement of the award on Monday, 21 June—the finalization of the contract with SOO Green HVDC Link for the supply and installation of high-voltage direct current cable systems for this first-of-its-kind transmission project to be installed underground along existing railroad rights of way.

The 2,100-megawatt interregional project, considered the first link in a national clean energy grid, will connect two of the largest energy markets in the US, delivering abundant, low-cost renewable energy to population centers from Chicago to the mid-Atlantic region.

As announced, cable production for the project is expected to start in 2023, in Prysmian's Abbeville, South Carolina facility.
