Prysmian Group has completed the installation and HV testing activities of its 1,400 km of submarine and land power cables for the Viking Link Interconnector, an onshore and offshore HVDC interconnector connecting the UK and Denmark.
Viking Link is a joint venture between National Grid and Energinet and it is due to be operational by the end of 2023. Once operational, it will enable the exchange of clean energy between the two countries. The High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) interconnector will operate at ±525 kV DC and will allow up to 1,400 MW of power to be transferred between the two countries passing through UK, Dutch, German and Danish waters.
