Installation of Western HVDC Link in Liverpool Bay Postponed

The installation of the shallow water section of the Western HVDC Link Project in the Liverpool Bay has been postponed.

The work was planned to begin early May using the Atalanti cable lay barge and support tug Artemis.

Western HVDC Link will comprise converter stations in England and Scotland, linked by a 420-kilometer subsea cable operating at 600 kilovolts (kV).

This is the first link to operate at 600-kV direct current, and the longest link at a 2.2-gigawatts continuous capacity.

Siemens’ Energy Sector will deliver the HVDC converter stations, and Prysmian will deliver the undersea and land cables.

The project’s total value amounts to €1.1 billion.
