Prysmian wins $11 million WestConnex contract


Thursday, 06 July, 2017


Cabling company Prysmian has won an $11 million contract to deliver 1100 km of MV, LV, control, communications and fibre-optic cables for the WestConnex new M4 project.

The contract, which will run from October 2017 to July 2018, was awarded by WestConnex new M4 contractor CPB Samsung John Holland JV (CSJ). The new M4 is the first tunnel section of WestConnex and continues Prysmian’s long involvement in critical tunnel projects. Around 50% of the total supply will be manufactured at Prysmian’s Liverpool plant and the rest will be supplied from the company’s affiliate factories in China, Spain and Germany.

Close cooperation with the customer CSJ to finalise cable schedules in regards to lengths and possible rationalisations is part of the support offered by Prysmian to successfully cover the contract. In addition, Prysmian’s cable management will be run from the Liverpool plant, which is conveniently located only 22 km from the customer site in Sydney. Prysmian is also offering technical support on the project. This will begin with a high level of involvement in the first month with support being available throughout the project execution.

Major infrastructure projects that Prysmian has been involved in include North West Rapid Transit, Legacy Way Tunnel and Sydney Light Rail.
