Currently for example, we’re working on Ultra High Voltage (UHV) DC systems, aiming to develop an 800 kV extruded solution to add to our current 600 kV provision. The deepest cable ever installed to-date reached a depth of 1.6 km. But we’re hard at work developing a system to reach depths of 3,000 m – almost doubling today’s possibilities.
We’re also pushing the limits traditionally associated with Offshore Wind Farm cable applications.
We aim to expand both the range of cables available and the power that each individual cable can carry from farms to shores – for both HVAC and HVDC.
Although we currently offer the highest voltage 3-core AC cables available on the market at 245 kV, we’re aiming to deliver 420 kV capabilities.
And we’re innovating for a more sustainable future too, implementing designs that reduce the power dissipation – or ‘power losses’ – that commonly occurs with the transmission of energy.
Our 66 kV inter-array cables for example, present considerable sustainable advantages to their more common 33 kV counterparts.
