State of the art and latest technology developments in HVDC transmission

Three in one cable.
Mass Impregnated (MI) DC cable with Integrated Return Conductor => eliminates the use of Sea return electrodes. Fibre Optic element integrated

500 kV 800 MW Mass Impregnated

Next step : 500 kV extruded polymer alloy => lighter in weight and reduced cost

AC submarine cables Horns Rev 1 and 2 experience

Technological status
Nexans installed the worlds first 170 kV 3-core XLPE insulated submarine cable to the Horns Rev offshore wind farm in 2002. Cable length 21 km Power transmission capacity 160 MW Step 2 (210 MW) of this wind mill farm Horns Rev II (43 km) was installed in Oct. 2008
