ZTT Group has been awarded a contract by Fugro to supply one 15.3-kilometer 33kV XLPE insulated submarine composite cable to Kangaroo island.
It will be the third submarine composite cable by SA Power Networks (SAPN) to connect southern Fleurieu Peninsula, south of Adelaide and the island.
The new 33kV cable will be able to transmit 20 kVA to replace old 33kV one with transmission capacity of 10 kVA.
ZTT will produce and deliver the cable in one continuous single length, without any factory joint. It should provide reliable power supply to residents and tourists of the island in future 30 to 40 years.
Following the successful delivery of a submarine cable to Australia offshore renewable industry couple years ago, this is another breakthrough for ZTT in Australia market.
The cable delivery is expected to be in Q1 2018 and installation by middle 2018.
