Kostantinos Savvakis, General Manager at Hellenic Cables, stated: “In 2017, Hellenic Cables achieved a significant milestone with the successful completion of the Oresund 132kV interconnection, a project that seamlessly linked Sweden and Denmark through the deployment of high-voltage submarine and land cables. We are pleased to continue our partnership with Energinet as we endeavour to connect Sweden and Denmark once again through high-voltage cables. This collaboration reaffirms the trust of our customers in our advanced cable solutions and our commitment to fostering efficient and sustainable energy connectivity between nations.”
