WORLD’S LONGEST AC INTERCONNECTOR MONITORED BY OMNISENS

At 120 km Enemalta’s Malta-Sicily interconnector is the longest AC cable of its type in the world. The 220 kV cable, supplied by Nexans Norway, comprises a 95 km subsea section and a 20 km buried section.
To provide condition monitoring along its entire length the cable is fitted with an Omnisens temperature sensing system. The system monitors the temperature of the cable via two interrogators, one housed in Sicily and one in Malta.
