Iberdrola starts work on the longest undersea electricity cable of its own type in the world

13/09/2013

The Spanish firm, through its ScottishPower affiliate, has started building on the very first undersea electricity connection between England and Scotland. Quantifying 420 kilometers, this is going to be the longest 2,000 MW HVDC cable of its ability in the worldThe job, called Western HVDC, will raise electricity transmission capability between the two states by more than 2,000 megawatts in each way, which will enable electricity produced in the north to be brought south as a function of future demand and supply.
The cable is likely to be completed in 2016. It’s going to be the longest of its own type on the planet, and allow up to 6,000 new megawatts of renewable energy capability to be linked to the English power system that is.
This growth could provide enough electricity to supply more than three million houses, making the job a vital factor in enabling the Uk to achieve its environmental targets.
The British market is a significant part of Iberdrola’s international growth, which started a decade past. Iberdrola the world’s biggest wind energy company and among the three largest electric utilities in Europe by market capitalization has been made by this increase. The purchase of ScottishPower, for €17.2 billion, took place six years back in April of 2007. It was the biggest acquisition in Iberdrola’s history.
