Prysmian Group has announced that the High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable system interconnecting Norway and Denmark is ready for commercial operation.
Prysmian was awarded the contract for the land HVDC cable system for the Skagerrak 4 interconnection between Norway and Denmark worth approximately € 40 million by the Danish transmission grid operator Energinet.dk in January 2011. The contract comprises the supply, jointing and testing of 92 kilometres of 500 kV mass-impregnated underground cable system and related accessories, with a transmission capacity of 700MW. The project contributes to the development of a more environmentally-friendly power market in Europe, by supporting the export of renewable energy produced in Norway and the growth of wind power generation in Denmark.
