About the project
REE, Red Eléctrica de España, the Spanish transmission system operator, ordered in 2014 the 90 million Euro cable link between Ibiza and Mallorca for the latest phase in a project to link the Balearic Islands to the mainland grid on the Iberian Peninsula. The aim was to provide the islands with a more reliable, energy efficient and lower emission power supply.
The 119 km cable, designed, manufactured and installed by Nexans featured state-of-the-art XLPE insulation. It set two world records for both the longest 3-core high-voltage (132 kV) AC connection, and the deepest at 800 metres at the time. The cable was manufactured in Nexans’ specialized subsea cable plant in Halden.
