The COpenhagen-BRussels-Amsterdam (COBRA) cable has been brought to land, the Dutch grid operator Tennet said on Friday.

COBRAcable is an interconnector between the Netherlands and Denmark, facilitating the transport of renewable energy and enhancing the security of supply.

The project will deliver a 300-kilometer long direct HVDC link between Eemshaven in the Netherlands and Endrup in Denmark. The interconnector will be established in collaboration between the Dutch TSO TenneT and the Danish TSO Energinet.dk.

The interconnector with a capacity of 700 MW is scheduled to be commissioned in early 2019.

COBRAcable holds the status of Project of Common Interest (PCI) under the European Commission, and is granted financial support from the EU.

Prysmian is supplying cables, while Siemens was contracted to deliver converter stations for the project.
