HVDC interconnector projects – technical challenges in delivery and implementation
High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) is a key technology for building high capacity interconnections between electricity grids. It is often the technology of choice for subsea cables crossing straits and channels between regions. As a result, HVDC projects bring together a unique set of multi-disciplinary challenges whether electrical, geotechnical, mechanical and operational and safety case related. This talk will give a background to the market and illustrate some of the technical challenges based on Mott MacDonald’s experience in advising clients to deliver or invest in these schemes.
