TenneT has entered into a partnership with Mitsubishi Corporation by agreeing to sell a 49% equity stake in two German offshore high-voltage cable projects, BorWin1 and BorWin2. Mitsubishi’s aggregate equity commitment will total EUR 240 million. This partnership represents a milestone transaction in Germany, allowing infrastructure investors to invest in separate clusters of regulated assets.

The two grid connections connect a number of offshore wind farms in the German North Sea to the onshore electricity grid and have a combined total capacity of 1,200 megawatt. The equity contribution of Mitsubishi represents 20% of the expected combined capital expenditures of approximately EUR 1.2 billion for these two projects. TenneT will retain majority ownership and will continue to operate the connections.  

The underlying regulatory structure has been developed by TenneT in cooperation with the German regulator (Bundesnetzagentur). The transaction is still subject to certain conditions, which are expected to be met before the Summer, and has been approved by TenneT’s sole shareholder, the Dutch State.

Mel Kroon, CEO TenneT, regards the agreement as an essential step for the successful integration of renewable energy: “TenneT is making exceptional efforts in the connection of offshore wind energy in Germany. Currently we are working on nine projects to connect wind farms in the German North Sea. These projects total to 5,000 megawatt of renewable electricity, enough energy to supply 5 million households. This long-term partnership with Mitsubishi Corporation is both a logical and important step in our considerable contribution to the transition to a sustainable energy supply.”

Eelco de Boer, CFO TenneT: “With this agreement, TenneT fulfils all of last year’s equity raising promises to the financial markets. This transaction demonstrates that these offshore projects are a sound investment under current circumstances in the financial markets.

Mitsubishi Electric to Upgrade Transpacific Submarine Cable Network

By admin, November 17, 2011 11:43 am

Mitsubishi (News – Alert) Electric, a provider of electrical and electronic equipments, announced its contract to upgrade a transpacific submarine cable network by incorporating 40 Gbps dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) and increasing transmission design capacity up to fivefold to 5.2 Tbps.

The company will install submarine line terminal equipment (SLTE) in eight countries as part of the upgrade to the Asia America Gateway (News – Alert) (AAG) Cable Network.

Mitsubishi Electric has set a target of third quarter of 2012 to complete the project.

A consortium of nineteen major telecommunications carriers owns the AAG Cable Network.

The AAG Cable Network, a 10 Gbps DWDM system set up in 2009, comprises over 20,000 kilometers of fiber-optic cable linking 10 landing stations located in seven Southeast Asian countries and the United States.

“We are proud to be selected as the supplier for the AAG Cable Network capacity upgrade,” said Masahiro Tsukamoto, general manager of Mitsubishi Electric’s (News – Alert) Telecommunication Systems Department, in a statement.

“Having received an order for similar work on the transatlantic TAT (News – Alert)-14 Cable Network, Mitsubishi Electric will become the first supplier of 40 Gbps upgrades to both transpacific and transatlantic networks. Allein 2012 wurden etliche neue Spiele vorgestellt, die fur ein Hochstma? an Abwechslung und spannende Spielstunden sorgen.. We now look forward to building on these wins to assist other network operators with high-quality upgrades,” Tsukamoto added.

The company is increasing the transmission capacity and speed in order to address the rapid increase in demand for internet traffic.

Mitsubishi Electric’s new high-speed fiber-optic technology, called coherent technology, enables 40 Gbps DWDM transmissions beyond 6,600 kilometers, which was one of the key factors underpinning the upgrade contract.

Recently, Mitsubishi Electric started tests of smart grid and smart-community technologies in Japan. The company is planning to develop and test products including commercial systems, equipment and solutions for annual sales worth about $17 billion by March 2016.

Madhubanti Rudra wrote that Azteca, a Grupo Salinas company, announced the winning of a $230 million project contract from the Columbian government. The contract requires the company to build and operate a fiber optic network that would cover about 80 percent of Colombia, an area where about 40 million people reside.

The project aims at providing telecommunications services for offices and homes in 753 municipalities. The Colombian government is offering a good amount of subsidy to ensure that the most important services for access to the information superhighway are within the reach of everyone, especially the country’s neediest, at accessible prices, through the efficient operations of a competitive company, Salinas explained in a statement.

Mitsubishi Electric has been a leader in submarine cable manufacturerssystems ever
since supplying the world’s first 5 Gbps optically amplified repeaters
for a transpacific cable manufacturersin 1994. In 1999, the company supplied the
world’s first 10 Gbps transmission technology for transoceanic cables,
comprising 10 Gbps optically amplified repeaters and SLTE. Since 2004,
the company has performed upgrades for various undersea cable manufacturerssystems
while continuing to expand its capabilities in this field.
