UK begins construction of the world’s largest subsea power line

Great Britain began to lay the longest submarine power supply system to date, with a length of 765 km.

The Viking Link project will connect the Lincolnshire coast with Danish Revsing. With its help, the UK will gain access to the vast wind resources of South Jutland and will be able to provide energy to 1.5 million homes.

Siemens Energy has already begun construction of the access road to the conversion station, which will connect the electric cable to the British network, in Fensky swamps.

Construction will cost foggy Albion £ 1.8 billion ($ 2.25 billion) and be completed in 2023. However, the project will allow the free transfer of electricity across borders.

Denmark began to develop wind energy in the 1970s and now satisfies 50% of the country’s demand.

However, in the next decade, Viking Link will lose its champion status, as last year the Australian government supported the project for the supply of electricity to Singapore via a 3800 km submarine cable.
