Guardian Geomatics to survey Australia-ASEAN Power Link route
Guardian Geomatics has secured a cable route survey contract by Sun Cable for the Australia-ASEAN Power Link.
The cable will supply electricity to Darwin, Singapore and Indonesia from a solar and battery storage farm, laid out in the Northern Territory.
Singapore and Indonesia will be supplied via a ~3,800km high voltage direct current submarine cable transmission route.
Guardian Geomatics will be undertaking the cable route survey between Darwin and Singapore.
This Sun cable project has been touted as a “game-changer” for an economy reliant on coal and gas export revenues.
Guardian Geomatics commercial director, Steve Duffield said, “Guardian Geomatics are always on the lookout for opportunities to improve our footprint and sustainability – this project is a step in the right direction and something we are very proud of.”
Sun Cable CEO and founder, David Griffin added, “Sun Cable is thrilled to have engaged Guardian Geomatics to undertake this critical survey work. They are performing work that will be critical to the success of the Australia-ASEAN Power Link”.
Project preparations will begin this month, with initial plans to utilise Guardian Offshore’s vessel “Offshore Solution” to undertake the work, starting later in 2020.
