Case Study: Nemo HVDC Project - Teshmont: Leaders in Power Delivery Engineering

Case Study

Nemo HVDC Project

Challenge:

Teshmont has been retained by Elia (Belgium) and National Grid (UK) to provide Owner's Engineer services for the Nemo HVDC Interconnector Project. The subsea HVDC connection required Voltage Source Converters (VSCs) at both ends of the link, and appropriate technology for the undersea cables.

HVDC Link Between the UK and Belgium

Solution:

Teshmont developed two specifications for the Nemo HVDC Project:

  • HVDC converter station specification package, which included a description of functional requirements for design, supply, and installation of two VSC HVDC converter stations including the dc equipment, ac equipment associated with the VSC interface transformers, and buildings associated with the converter stations.
  • HVDC land and submarine cable specification package, which included a description of functional requirements for design, supply, and installation of submarine and underground HVDC cables, terminations, splices and auxiliary equipment.
