Siemens Power Transmission & Distribution Inc., headquartered in Raleigh, N.C., has commissioned a new high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission link between Sayreville, N.J., and Long Island, N.Y.

Fairfield, Conn.-based Neptune RTS, owner and operator of the transmission system, will place the power link at the disposal of the local utility, Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), Siemens notes. LIPA will use the link to help cover growing power demand and strengthen Long Island's transmission system.

According to Siemens, this low-loss power transmission system provides access to diverse energy sources - including renewables - via a combination of submarine and subterranean cables linked directly to the electrical network in Nassau County, which borders on and is electrically interconnected with New York City.
