Prysmian announced the opening of a new plant for the production of optical fiber cable in Slatina, Romania.

The Slatina factory celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, having started its manufacturing activity in 1973 with production of energy cables, while in 2009 it introduced the first module for the production of optical fiber cables. The factory boasts a number of quality certifications such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and IMQ, and the new plant will triple its production, from 500,000 kilometers up to 1.5 million kilometres of cables per year, with the potential of reaching 3 million.

The Slatina plant stretches across almost 100.000 square meters, with a covered area of around 42,000 square meters. This will create a total yearly production capacity of 30,000 tons of energy cable (from high voltage cables up to 110 kilovolts and building wires, to power and instrumentation and control cables), almost 1,500,000 km of optical cable and 500,000 kilometers of copper telecom cable (covering almost all possible demand for both optical fiber and copper telecom cables types), employing over 400 people.
