Anbaric helped spearhead the development of two buried 660-MW HVDC projects between New Jersey and New York: the Neptune Regional Transmission System and the Hudson Transmission Project, which were delivered on schedule and on budget.
The Hudson Transmission Project (HTP) is a 660-MW electric transmission link between New York City and New Jersey. The Hudson Transmission Project’s main purpose is to provide a new source of electric power for New York City customers of the New York Power Authority (NYPA), and the project also includes significant upgrades and reinforcements to the transmission system in New Jersey. HTP began construction in May 2011 and was completed in June 2013.
The Hudson Transmission Project is entirely underground and underwater, using back-to-back high-voltage direct current (HVDC) technology and high-voltage alternating current (HVAC) transmission under the Hudson River. The route begins in Ridgefield, New Jersey, where a new converter station interconnects to a Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) substation. The line follows existing railroad rights-of-way through an inactive railroad tunnel to the edge of the Hudson River in Edgewater. It is then buried beneath the Hudson for approximately three-and-a-half miles to a landfall point near Pier 92 in Manhattan. The final half-mile of cable is routed beneath the West Side Highway and ultimately into the ConEd W. 49th Street Substation.
