 Siemens Wins $35 Million Transformer Order for Nemo Link

The image above shows a similar power transformer serving at a converter station on the HVDC link between France and Spain.


Siemens has won a $35 million bid to supply eight transformers for the Nemo Link project, a high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission system connecting Belgium and Great Britain.

Nemo Link is a joint venture between National Grid Nemo Link Limited, a subsidiary of the UK’s National Grid, and the Belgian Elia Group.
Each of the eight transformers is rated at 365 megavolt amperes. The HVDC link will deliver a transmission capacity of 1,000 MW, enough to power the equivalent of a half-million homes.
Commercial operation of the link is expected to begin in 2019.
