Nexans’ largest HVDC cable
- A subsea power transmission cable between southern Finland and Sweden following a 200 km long route over the Bay of Bothnia.
- It constitutes a bipole together with the existing 550 MW, 400 kV FennoSkan connection, in operation since in 1989.
- The customer wanted to improve capacity in the Nordic power market and to reduce losses in the Nordic transmission grids at the same time as improving power system reliability.
- The FennoSkan 2 should provide a 40 percent increase in the power transmission capacity between the two countries.
