Europacable speaks at Fachkonferenz Erdkabel, Kassel, on SuedLink partial undergrounding

SuedLink, an 800 km HVDC link planned to connect Northern Germany to Bavaria is Germany´s largest electricity infrastructure project in the context of implementing the country´s “Energiewende”. The regulatory framework foresees partially undergrounded sections in this point-to-point HVDC connection.

Speaking at a conference in Kassel dedicated to the SuedLink project, Europacable confirmed the availability of HVDC underground cable technology for partially undergrounded sections. HVDC massimpregnated as well as HVDC XLPE cable technology is available to carry the load factor envisaged by the responsible transmission operators TenneT and TransnetBW.
