A joint Venture of Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), Electricité de France (EDF) and Kyushu Electric Power Japan has awarded a HVDC cable installation and convertors package for the ADNOC-TAQA Lightning Project to a consortium composed of Jan De Nul Group and Samsung C&T.

The package awarded to Jan De Nul and Samsung is currently the first-of-its-kind HVDC submarine cable project in the Middle East and MENA region. The consortium’s contract value is 3 billion USD of which 725 million USD for Jan De Nul’s scope.

The first cable cluster, connecting Das Island to shore, comprises three 400 kV subsea cables of 135 km each. The second cluster, connecting Al Ghallan island to shore, concerns four 320 kV submarine cables of 125 km each. The commissioning of the project is scheduled for 2025.
