VIDEO: Securing Guernsey’s supply of green electricity
NKT’s high-voltage submarine cable systems pave the way for renewables on the Channel Island of Guernsey. To meet the very tight timeframe, NKT executed many preparations and operations simultaneously. The cable system was manufactured in Karlskrona, Sweden, at the NKT plant fed purely on green energy. The cable is protected by double layers of armor wires and capable of transmitting power at 90 kV (kilovolt) of AC (alternating current).
