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 ‚ÄúViking 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.
