The contract with 50Hertz Transmission GmbH’s offshore unit for its West of Adlergrund projects includes about 250 million euros in grid-connection options, Prysmian said today in a statement on its website. Terms weren’t disclosed.

The cable will run about 93 kilometers (58 miles) to a substation in northeast Germany. Installation is expected to begin next year.
