Prysmian Group announces, following the communication of the award on Friday 18 June, the signing of the contract with TEİAŞ for the supply of two high-voltage submarine power cable links, one between Europe and Asia, and the other across the Izmit Gulf in Asia.

The signing ceremony took place this morning at the presence of Orhan Yıldırım, TEİAŞ General Manager, and Prysmian Group representatives Hakan Ozmen, EVP Projects, Cinzia Farisè, Regional CEO MEAT, and Ulku Ozcan, Prysmian Turkey CEO.

“This is another important step for Prysmian Group and now we are ready to start working on the Turkish Crossing project. We are very proud of the partnership with TEİAŞ and we will do our best to further strengthen our business relation with them,” stated Hakan Ozmen.

These two projects will complement the other interconnections developed by Prysmian for TEİAŞ in the past years (Dardanelles II and Dardanelles I), thus qualifying the Group as a leader in executing infrastructural projects aimed at contributing to the energy transition process in the Turkish area.

As announced, the completion of both contracts is expected by 2023.
