Tender No. 2021/S 030-075341 - Engineering, procurement, construction and Installation of the HVDC cable system including all required offshore and onshore joints for Pole 1 of the Cyprus – Greece (Crete) Link. The distance between the sea/land transition bays in Cyprus and Greece (Crete) is approximately 898 km and the submarine cable will be laid at an approximate maximum water depth of 3 000 m. The distance between the sea/land transition bay and the Converter Station in Cyprus is approximately 13 km and in Crete is approximately 10 km. The land cable will be pulled through pre-installed concrete encased conduits.
EuroAsia Interconnector is a multi-terminal VSC-HVDC scheme which will connect Israel, Cyprus and Greece (Crete), and will comprise converter stations with sea electrodes, interconnected by cables. The project will allow the transfer of 1000MW between converter stations and the envisaged voltage level will be ±500 kV.
The scheme will be developed under five main tender procedures:
— procurement of the VSC HVDC Converter Stations;
— procurement of the HVDC Cable System for the Cyprus-Greece (Crete) Link;
— procurement of the HVDC Cable System for the Israel-Cyprus Link;
— procurement of the Sea-electrode Systems;
— procurement of the civil works.
This process concerns the second of the above tender processes and encompasses the engineering, procurement, construction and installation of the HVDC cable systems for the Cyprus – Greece (Crete) Link of the EuroAsia Interconnector.
