LS Cable & System announced on July 17 that it received a 62-billion-won ultra-high voltage undersea cable order from Singapore PowerGrid.
LS Cable & System will supply the cable for SPPG's project of connecting a 1.5-kilometer area between Woodlands, a new town located in the North Region of Singapore, and Johor Baharu, a resort city in the southern part of Malaysia. This project is to replace the old undersea cable installed by a French firm in 1985.
LS Cable & System, which received the order on a turnkey basis covering the process of design, material procurement, and installation, will complete the installation of the undersea cable by the end of next year.
LS officials said, "Ultra-high voltage undersea cable requires a high level of technology and track records, leaving only five companies in the world, including LS, to supply."
They added, "In particular, this was the first time for a Korean company to receive an ultra high-voltage undersea cable project order from Southeast Asia." email@example.com
