Submarine energy systems
The most common applications of submarine cables in power transmission and distribution systems are: electrical feeding of islands from the mainland or a major island of an archipelago, interconnections between HV networks for possible transfer of electrical power in both directions, transfer of cheap power generated on natural or artificial islands to the mainland, crossing of sea inlets and rivers, connection to or between offshore oil production facilities and transmission of power from renewable offshore sources.
Submarine cables systems
Connection to or between offshore oil production facilities is one of the most common applications of submarine cable systems. Prysmian is the acknowledged world leader - both in terms of market share and technical know-how - in the submarine cable systems field.
