Teshmont provided Owner's Engineer services for the Nemo Link Interconnector project, a 1000 MW, 400 kV HVDC submarine link between the UK and Belgium, which will utilize Voltage Source Converter (VSC) technology in a symmetrical bipole arrangement.
Teshmont developed two specifications for the Nemo HVDC Project, namely:
The specifications were developed to allow Suppliers to optimize the voltage, either 350 kV or 400 kV, and the cable specification allowed the suppliers to propose their optimal cable, namely Mass Impregnated (MI) or Cross Linked Polyethylene (XLPE).
Teshmont’s team also provided technical bid evaluation services for this project which involved reviewing the various bids, asking clarification questions to the bidders, assessing the clarification responses, and providing recommendations.
The project will include the worlds’ first 400 kV XLPE submarine cable.
