The Danish TSO, Energinet.dk, and the equivalent system operator in the Netherlands, Tenne-T, have recently signed supplier contracts for a new power cable from the Netherlands to Denmark. It will, in a few years, contribute to the Nordic countries continuing to deliver even more wind power to Europe, while promoting the green transition.

The project; to build an undersea high voltage cable between Denmark and the Netherlands, the so-called COBRA cable, recently passed a milestone. This happened as the two system operators, Energinet.dk and Dutch TenneT, entered into agreements with suppliers on the cable development.
