World’s largest solar project proposed in Australia, connected to SE Asia via subsea cable

July 5, 2019

Singapore-based Sun Cable has proposed a 10 GW solar farm near Tenant Creek in Australia, with facilities to export electricity via a subsea High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable straight to Singapore. Rystad Energy’s RenewableCube database offers extensive coverage of the project, which will provide one fifth of Singapore’s electricity needs. In terms of size, the only solar project of a similar scale in Australia is the Asian Renewable Energy Hub which plans to supply a regional load to the Pilbara region, as well as green hydrogen for both international and domestic markets.
