The sun and wind from Morocco will be shipped to the UK via HVDC cable at sea. At 380 km, HVDC cables will be one of the longest in the world.
Sun Cable previously announced that electricity from the world’s largest solar and battery park would be transported from Australia to Singapore on a 400km long HVDC cable. The AA Powerlink project aims to provide Darwin’s first power supply via the 80km overhead line by 2026 – it will only be sent underwater next year.
Now, however, a challenge is presented. British Exlinks will transfer 1,500 square kilometers of solar and 10.5 gigawatts of wind power to Morocco – England. It tells about its company Website.
The Xlinks Morocco-UK Power Project claims to use the world’s longest HVDC cables, with a range of 380 km underwater.
Longer HVDC cable between Australia and Singapore
The record is said to be controversial by Australians, but will operate in 2027 on a total of four cables off the coast of Spain, Portugal and outside France. The remaining three cables from Morocco are planned to supply electricity to the British. 2029. They can transmit 3.6 GW for more than 20 hours each day.
The cost of the project is SEK 191 billion – but, on the other hand, it will be able to provide electricity to 7 million households by 2030 and no other countries will be allowed to participate in the cream. The plant in Morocco has 7 GW of sunlight, 3.5 GW of air supply, and an additional 20 GWh / 5 GW battery park.
