Giant Solar Farm Project In Doubt After Disagreement Between Mike Cannon-Brookes And Andrew Forrest

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

This is the sub-heading.

Australian billionaires had backed $30bn Sun Cable venture designed to help power Darwin, Indonesia and Singapore but the company has gone into voluntary administration.

It does look like the administrators will be able to continue the project and look for more funding.

Qatar must be in the frame, as this link will probably cut some of their gas sales.

I wrote about this monster project in Sun Cable’s Australia-Asia PowerLink.

I wonder if this administration will have any effects on the prospects of the other giant intercontinental interconnectors?

  1. EuroAfrica Interconnector – See The EuroAfrica Interconnector
  2. EuroAsia Interconnector – See The EuroAsia Interconnector
  3. Morroco-UK Power Project – See Moroccan Solar-Plus-Wind To Be Linked To GB In ‘Ground-Breaking’ Xlinks Project
  4. TransPacific Interconnector – See Chile Wants To Export Solar Energy To Asia Via 15,000km Submarine Cable

The economics will decide. But I do think, the last one could be a bit ambitious.
