ELECTRIC HVDC TRANSMISSION INDUSTRY

HVDC Electric Transmission Industry

The Principal of EnviroGulf Consulting has local and international experience of high voltage direct current (HVDC) interconnector projects with marine components, such as subsea HVDC, electrode and optic fibre cables and sea electrodes.

The Principal completed a 2-year assignment for the Basslink Project, which proposed an HVDC link between the Australian mainland (Victoria) and Tasmania. In support of the Basslink Project, the Principal carried out environmental reviews and site visits of existing HVDC interconnectors in Sweden, Norway and Denmark. The monopole Basslink Interconnector with a metallic return cable is now in operation.

The Principal is also a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the Conseil International des Grands Réseaux Électriques (CIGRÉ)

EnviroGulf Consulting has compiled a list of world HVDC Projects with Marine Infrastructure, which shows existing and proposed HVDC interconnectors.
