Doubling power transmission over longer distances

The record-breaking 525kV extruded HVDC cable system doubles transmission capacity over longer distances keeping the losses on a low level. This enables greater integration of renewables by power interconnections to the grid.

By utilizing a new cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulation material for extruded HVDC cable applications as well as a number of newly developed accessories the system enables power transmissions at significantly higher voltage levels than previously possible. The cable system meets international standards and recommendations for extruded cable systems, including the extensive qualification by type tests and long-term pre-qualification tests.

A key step towards greater utilization of renewable

The 525 kV extruded HVDC cable system has a power rating of up to 2600 MW, and is ideal for delivering larger amounts of electrical power over longer distances than was previously possible. The cable system is a key element in the developing vision of a DC grid that can utilize renewable energy generation more efficiently.

Utilization of the extruded HVDC cable system technology is advantageous when power needs to be efficiently delivered through populated or environmentally sensitive areas or in coastal or open-sea applications. HVDC cable links are essential components of future sustainable energy systems required to transmit vast amounts of electricity over very long distances e.g. across and between continents.
