[Cable Network News] The British National Grid said on Monday that it has begun the construction of Viking Link, a submarine interconnection project between the UK and Denmark.
Viking Link is a direct submarine cable system jointly developed by National Grid Ventures, a subsidiary of National Grid, a British national grid company, and Energinet, the owner and operator of the Danish power system.
According to reports, the system has a transmission capacity of 1.4 GW. After completion, it will become the world's longest submarine high-voltage DC interconnection cable, reaching 756 kilometers.
German industrial giant Siemens will build converter stations for both ends of the direct connection system, namely the UK and Denmark.
According to the plan, the system will be completed by the end of 2023, with a total cost of 2.3 billion US dollars, and it is expected to provide green energy for 1 million British households.
Grid operators stated that by 2030, 90% of the electricity imported through the submarine interconnection system of the State Grid will come from zero-carbon energy.
