Observing the world of renewable energy and sustainable living

Construction Started COBRA Cable Netherlands-Denmark

COBRAcable (COpenhagen-BRussels-Amsterdam cable) is a planned 320 kV, 700 MW HVDC submarine power cable between Eemshaven, the Netherlands, and Endrup near Esbjerg, Denmark.

The cable will have a length of 325ā€“350 km, and will be jointly owned by Energinet.dk and TenneT. Its purpose is to improve the European transmission grid and thus to increase the amount of variable wind power in the energy mix while improving the supply security. Its 700 MW capacity corresponds to an annual transmission capacity of 6.1 TWh

The capacity of the cable, to be completed in 2019, would be sufficient to power a city like Amsterdam. The construction of the cable is a natural part of the strategy to move towards more renewable energy and the necessity to even out intermittent supply.
