Prysmian Group, will showcase its comprehensive range of products and technologies, specifically dedicated to High Voltage underground and submarine power transmission, at the 2016 Biannual Session of CIGRE (the International Council on Large Electrical Systems, one of the key worldwide bodies operating in the sector) that will take place in Paris from August 22 to 26.
During the Technical Session, CIGRE will also announce the new chairmanship of SC B1 “Insulated Cables”, one of the main authorities in terms of recommendations and standards in the worldwide EHV cable industry with Marco Marelli, System Engineering Director at Prysmian Powerlink, appointed to this position for the next term.
Outstanding subjects presented by the Group for the 2016 edition will touch important topics including large HVDC projects completed and under execution, advanced EHV AC solutions applied to submarine interconnections, increased power transmission performances for underground systems, environmental friendly and economic designs.
Prysmian experts will provide further insight on their technical papers presented in the SC sessions in dedicated Poster Sessions. Ultimate technologies and products for applications in the power transmission industry, both on-shore and offshore will be on display at the Prysmian booth in the Technical Exhibition.
CIGRE 2016 comes at an important time for the Group in terms of technological achievements, following announcements for the successful qualification of the most advanced technologies in the field of insulation materials for HVDC cable systems: 525 kV HPTE (PLaser), 600 kV XLPE and 700 kV MI PPL.
Prysmian representatives will be on hand during CIGRE 2016 to discuss with delegates how the latest developments in their range of HVDC land and submarine cables can be utilized to suit future global applications of HVDC power transmission systems.
