The project is being developed by the independent power transmission operator ADMIE, the main operator of the Hellenic Electricity Transmission System.
Hellenic Cables, through its 100% subsidiary Fulgor, will produce the 136-km long cable at its Corinth plant.
Jan De Nul Group will install the cable in water up to 980 m using its cable laying trenching support vessel Isaac Newton and the protection of up to 100 m water depth on both shore sides. With a length overall of 138 m, beam of 32 m and loaded draught of 7.3 m, Isaac Newton is dynamic positioning class 2 capable, with two 1,500-kW bow thrusters and one 2,000-kW retractable thruster.
In cable laying mode, Isaac Newton is highly capable, with the ability to install up to 10,700 tonnes of cable equipped with a 7,400-tonne capacity turntable above deck and a 5,000-tonne capacity turntable below deck along with two tensioners of 20 tonnes or as required by the project, chute and auxiliary equipment.
