Projects Division

Do you want to take part in the energy transition? Our Projects Division can be your next career opportunity!

We are hiring for professionals who want to challenge themselves through global impactful projects.

Since 2007 Prysmian’s Projects Division has worked on Supply Only and Turnkey Projects, designing, manufacturing, building, trading cables and components especially for the energy transmission for the major national and international operators. It is an EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) Contractor, so its teams follow each phase from the very beginning to its end.


Together with the other Prysmian Group entities, the Projects Division works on clear goals, built on 3 key pillars:

Our commitment to valuing inclusion and gender equality.

Projects Division takes seriously into account the commitment that Prysmian, through Social Ambition | Prysmian Group, supports in pursuing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals which aim at promoting strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection.

In this scenario, particular importance is assigned to the objectives that point at recognizing the need for diversity, inclusion and gender equality at all levels; Projects Division is committed to empowering more women to pursue careers with Prysmian in technical and scientific roles.

An example is Katerina Schmid’s experience: A female leadership success story in logistics | Prysmian Group

Prysmian Group Logistics expert Kateryna Schmid is responsible for the delivery and interim storage as well as later delivery to the construction site of 470 km of underground cables for the Nothern part of SuedLink project, which is crucial for Germany’s successful energy transition. She joined Prysmian in 2020, moving to Würzburg, where Prysmian had set up one of the three project offices needed for the job (the other two are in Bayreuth and Wuppertal).

Kateryna persevered, acquired the necessary expertise and constantly improved her skills. After successfully completing that project, she sought out new challenges, and found exactly what she was looking for at Prysmian.


"I think it's great to own a central function in the project as a knowledge carrier. The daily exchange with so many partners involved is an exciting challenge. The technical topics also excite me. I'm constantly improving my knowledge about how the cables are created and how they are further developed,” Kateryna said

The voice of our female professionals

Prysmian Group has been actively engaged in several initiatives that prioritized Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, striving to create a supportive environment for employees to balance their personal and professional lives.

Give voice to some of the women who work in Projects Division: women with a high seniority and women who have recently joined the Company, mothers, women in career who have reached a position making space in the male universe, professionals who, thanks to their consolidated skills, have been able to combine Company's objectives and personal ones.


I joined Prysmian in the role of Project Director for the Suedlink, one of the German Corridors projects, among the most strategic projects in our Company.

Clearly, the decision to assign such responsibility to a woman implies the absence of genre prejudices, and rather, instead, opening and trust, which is natural for a company like Prysmian, counting, among other excellences, the general recognition of a sustainability role model, seen as an example for other operators in the energy business.

It often occurs, in fact, while discussing about Prysmian projects in international contexts, to raise a genuine interest for Prysmian commitments supporting STEM initiatives for women graduates and professionals, as published in internal and in public events, and I can say those initiatives are perceived as references.

I would like to add another element I am very proud of, as a Project responsible: the presence in the team of known and established women engineers including the Research and Development environment, a field which was traditionally retained “masculine”. And this is an increasing trend.

I believe this particular attention to prize and reward professionality independently from the genre, thanks to a long term vision, is the basis for a fair and effective resource development.


From the first interviews at Prysmian PowerLink, I immediately had the impression that the real company intent was to probe the candidate's skills and competences, nothing else.

Impression confirmed at the time of hiring where I found myself in a team made by only men:  this ever was (is) a problem.

My commitment was soon enhanced since, within a few months, I was offered a position of responsibility, in which my reports are men.

Satisfactions and economic awards are totally independent of the fact that I am a woman and young: the motivation towards personal growth is assured to every employee who is committed and who constitutes a resource for the company.

The world of cables may seem reserved for male personnel, but my experience let me assure you that this is not the case!


I hold the position of Portfolio Contract Manager at Prysmian PowerLink. It is indeed part of the “industrial world”, it should by no means be exclusively associated with a male domain. Thanks to Prysmian's STEM policies and the multidisciplinary nature that characterizes the company, various roles are filled by professionals from diverse backgrounds. For instance, my team is exceptionally diverse in terms of gender, origin, skills, geographic location, and more. I am delighted to affirm that this diversity truly reflects Prysmian's culture, which regards diversity as a valuable asset.

One might think that the world of cables isn't interesting, but in reality, working at Prysmian means having the opportunity to contribute to projects of significant impact. Of course, we conduct business, but we do so sustainably and its impact extends well beyond the pure cable industry going into the realm of energy transition for a more sustainable world for future generations.

In this regard, I recently became a mother, and Prysmian's family-friendly policies and the new Parental policy have been instrumental in making this experience more manageable. Balancing parenthood with a demanding career is undeniably challenging, but I hope that these two aspects can increasingly coexist harmoniously!

Have a look at some of our projects

German Corridors


Three underground energy cable systems connect German wind farms in the North Sea to the southern states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. This is the energy project that will lead Germany to have 65 % of its electricity consumed from renewable sources by 2030.

Of these systems, Prysmian will lay about 2,300 kilometers of energy cables, which are required for the three German corridor projects.

These will include the use of the P-Laser 525 kV cable, the first 100% recyclable, environmentally sustainable and high-performance cable.

Tyrrhenian Link


The Tyrrhenian Link project involves the design, supply, and installation of more than 1,500 km of submarine cables to support energy exchange between Sardinia, Sicily, and Campania, thereby strengthening the Mediterranean energy hub.

The submarine and land cables will be produced at the Arco Felice (Naples) plant and the cable laying will be largely carried out by the Leonardo da Vinci, the world's largest cable laying vessel. Noteworthy is the fact that Tyrrhenian will set a record for submarine cable installation in terms of depth. The estimated level is approximately 2250 meters b.s.l.

Sofia Project


This is a project to build a turnkey high-voltage subsea and onshore cable system for the Sofia offshore wind farm; it’s signed by RWE Renewables, one of the world's largest developers of offshore wind farms.

The Projects Division will be responsible for the design, supply, installation and testing of a symmetrical single-core high voltage direct current (HVDC) cable system that will connect the offshore substation to the onshore conversion station in Teesside. The project includes more than 440 km of ±320 kV submarine cables with XLPE insulation, installed via the Leonardo Da Vinci, and 15 km of ±320 kV land-based cables with P-Laser insulation.
