Europagrid is a specialised developer of cross-border transmission projects and energy internet grid technology. These projects help to connect renewable and carbon-free generation sources to key markets.
The interconnectors under our development provide backbone infrastructure to support the delivery of renewable energy to end-users, on a wholesale scale and business-to-consumer scale. These electricity links reinforce energy network allowing large renewable generation sources to access key markets and assist in system balancing. Our projects are ensuring security of supply, opening new markets and creating new opportunity for power trading.
Our smart interconnectors’ network with state-of-the-art HVDC subsea cables represents a major step towards a global transition to energy sustainability.
The power grid of today has not changed much since Edison or Tesla. Hundred and fifty years on, power is still transmitted through copper cables, we burn coal and use fossil fuels to turn on engine.
Europagrid works on R&D and commercialisation of innovative transmission technology to move electricity over long distances, effectively utilise its potential to build missing links for priority energy corridors, as well as provide high-end smart grid assets, including distributed storages and EV charging stations, with low costs, high performance and long life.
Converter stations are constructed at both sides of a link to enable the transfer of energy between the DC cable and the existing AC grids.
Land & Submarine Cable
The interconnector system consists of two parallel cables and one fibre optic cable that are bundled together. Each cable is a standardised design for high voltage direct current transfer allowing for flexibility during manufacturing installation.Europagrid is driven by the development and commercialisation of innovative technology that can enhance the strength of the electricity grid, provide greater security of supply, make the energy grid far more sustainable and that all in environmentally friendly manner. We want to build the new energy routes bigger, stronger, better, to ultimately end up rewiring the planet.
Europagrid is a company founded on the premise that investment in good science and the rigorous pursuit of R&D excellence can translate into new products and technologies that can positively affect the world around us.
To transmit power across continents requires innovative energy industry and breakthrough technologies. Our goal is to create first-in-class and best-in-class transmission technology.
Examples of Europagrid’s ongoing research are:
We are developing a large core energy infrastructure that is required for transmitting vast amount of wholesale power from renewable generation sources.
Verdi Interconnector is a 1,000 MW HVDC interconnection line connecting Tunisia with the Italian island of Sicily, creating an energy bridge across the Mediterranean.
The link will allow the two continents to exchange power and increase the use of renewable energy. There are prominent economic benefits of interconnection due to the complimentary advantages arising from different climatic conditions, load and generation characteristics of the two continents.
The project will be a catalyst for the development of large-scale renewable generation, tapping into the vast renewable energy potential of North Africa.
Atlantic Link is a multi-terminal infrastructure combining 500 MW and 1,200 MW HVDC interconnection projects to be built between Spain, France, United Kingdom and Ireland, creating an energy ring along the Western coasts of Europe.
The link will provide a key cross-border infrastructure to create new trading routes and renewable energy corridors, helping to eliminate bottlenecks, enhance security of supply in the region and ending the energy isolation of the Iberian Peninsula and Ireland from the rest of the internal energy market.
Noor Link is a 2,000 MW HVDC multi-terminal interconnection line to be built between Turkey, Cyprus and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The project will give both continents improved reliability and access to electricity and sustainable generation. It will help the Middle East to continue being an industrial powerhouse for the export of energy.
