Nexans wins major frame contract as RTE makes ‘The greener choice’

Gilles Etheimer, Purchasing Director of RTE, states: “RTE’s mission is to adapt the power grid to the energy transition by guaranteeing the security of power supply to the French people at a lower economic, environmental and visual cost.  As we have already had the opportunity to reiterate through “The Greener Choice“, an open letter sent by RTE, ELIA, REN, TENNET, RED ELECTRICA, NG and TERNA to their suppliers in November 2020, we expect the winners of our contracts to have a strong ambition regarding environmental and societal issues. Nexans receives a significant share of the volumes and we are counting on them as a long-term partner to continue to make a difference both in terms of quality and the environment for a more sustainable world.”

Christopher Guérin, CEO of Nexans, says: “As France’s Transmission System Operator, RTE is at the center of the transition towards a more sustainable and carbon-free world. By reinforcing our long term partnership with RTE, we strengthen Nexans’ ambition to be a leader in electrification and the global energy transition. The partnership extends well beyond this frame agreement as we are working on individual projects such as supplying the 225 kV power export cables for the Saint-Brieuc offshore wind farm in the English Channel. Together, RTE and Nexans are electrifying the future.”
