  1. Western Link subsea power cable reaches land

    A 385 km subsea power cable, billed as one of the world’s largest, has come ashore in the UK this week. The cable reached shore at Ardneil Bay in North Ayrshire, Scotland as part of the £1bn ($1.25bn) Western Link HVDC project, which aims to transfer renewable power from Scotland’s transmission network to consumption centres in England and Wales. The project is a joint venture between ScottishPower and National Grid, with construction work on the direct current cables and two converter stations being carried out by a consortium comprised of Siemens and cable manufacturer Prysmian.   The €800m ($859m) cable contract was awarded to Prysmian in 2012. When completed, the network will have a transmission capacity of 2.2 GW.
