Project name: Alba Marina and Rospo Platform – Adriatic SeaALBA-MARINA
Location: Italy
Company/client: Edison

Edison, Europe’s oldest energy company needed cable to power its Alba Marina floating gas storage and offloading vessel (FSO) and the Rospo Mare B Platform. Rospo Mare is  in the Adriatic sea, about 20 km off the Abruzzo coast, 80 meters deep.
The company needed cable that offered advanced performance while being tough enough to cope with the harshest of environments.

Tratos supplied 1830 metres of TratoSubmarine medium voltage cable. Manufactured in Tratos’ Italian factory to IEC 60228 and IEC 60502-2, IEC 60840 to 26/45 KV, the cable comes with a copper or aluminium circular stranded conductor, extruded semi-conducting layer, HEPR insulation and a special hygroscopic PE inner and over sheath.
It features double galvanised steel armouring for exceptional durability, making it ideally suited to the oil and gas and utilities markets. The TratoSubmarine power cable replaces the existing Tratos cable fitted at the Alba Marina and Rospo Mare B Platform in 2004
