Lavrio Syros Interconnector Project

About the project
The project of the Cyclades Islands Interconnection in Greece is aimed at ensuring the reliable, economic and sufficient supply of electricity to the Syros, Paros, Tinos, Mykonos and Naxos islands. By interconnecting the Cyclades Islands, ADMIE seeks to reduce the number of the existing power stations operating on heavy fuel oil and light fuel oil (diesel) and create the necessary infrastructure for harnessing the significant renewable power potential in the region.
As the phase ‘C’ of this three-phase complex project is taking place, ADMIE, Independent Power Transmission Operator, has awarded Nexans with a new contract worth approximately €111 million to deliver an interconnector between the city of Lavrion on the Greek mainland and the island of Syros.
The complete turnkey contract awarded to Nexans within the phase ‘C’ of the project covers seabed survey, design, manufacturing, installation and protection of a 150 kV HVAC three-core submarine power cable with an internal fiber optical element. The route extends to 108 km with an expected maximum water depth of 300 m. The submarine cables for the link will be produced by Nexans Norway in its Halden plant, while the fiber optical cable will be produced in Nexans Norway’s specialized factory in Rognan. The interconnector will be installed at water depths up to 300 m by the advanced cable-laying vessel CS Nexans Skagerrak.
