Connectivity solutions for reliable, future-ready power grids
We are pleased to announce that HUBER+SUHNER's connectivity solutions will control the flow of electricity in the first high voltage direct current (HVDC) link between Denmark and the UK. Siemens Energy will utilise HUBER+SUHNER fiber optic assemblies and patch cables in two converter stations located in Lincolnshire on the UK coast, and southern Jutland on the Danish side.
The “Viking Link" permits a transfer of 1.4 GW of energy and augments the flexibility and integration of the European energy grid, vital for efficient injection and deployment of renewable energy.

Power plants and substations must be able to communicate with remote substations and monitoring systems, as well as with the higher-level control centre. To measure high voltages and currents, the cabling must be non-conductive and insensitive to electromagnetic fields. Fiber optic technology meets these critical requirements and is ideal for transmitting data over large distances. HUBER+SUHNER has a wide portfolio of robust cables, cable systems and accessories which are particularly suitable for challenging installations.
