World’s Longest Underwater DC Cables to export Australian Solar Power to Singapore

It’s just a matter of when that a $20bn Long-distance power cables taking Solar Electricity in Darwin, Australia to consumers in Singapore and Indonesia !!! This will “stretch” the technology for transmission technology, but is perfectly feasible, according to the pioneer of the technology, ABB.

The “Mike Cannon-Brookes” -backed Sun Cable project in the Northern Territory involves a plan to lay a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) cable between Darwin and Singapore to export power. The project contains a 3750 kilometers long undersea cables which will be “the longest” in the world.

“I don’t think technology is a constraint; it is being used to transport bulk renewable energy from either offshore wind or remote solar farms, so the technology is there and it is available, and it has been proven to be commercially viable in many other markets,” Zurich-based Mr Danieli from ABB said in an interview in Australia.
