Prysmian Completes HVDC Submarine Cable Testing

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

The article has this sub-heading.

The ‘first’ 525kV extruded wire can increase maximum transmission capacity up to more than 2.5GW.

This paragraph gives the implications of this new maximum transmission capacity.

This will enable a massive increase of the maximum transmission capacity of bi-pole systems up to more than 2.5GW, which is more than double the value achieved with 320kV DC systems currently in service, Prysmian said.

As in the future we will have many more large offshore wind farms in the UK, this surely must mean that we will find connecting them up a lot easier.
