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 Neptune Regional Transmission System (Neptune RTS) is a high voltage direct current (HVDC) undersea and underground power cable that links the New Jersey power grid to New York and provides 660-MW of power to the Long Island Power Authority (LIPA) – enough for 600,000 homes. The cable runs approximately 65 miles between Sayreville, New Jersey, and New Cassel (North Hempstead) on Long Island.
The Neptune Regional Transmission System was completed on budget and ahead of schedule in June 2007 by a consortium of Siemens Power Transmission & Distribution and Prysmian Cables and Systems under contract to Neptune RTS. Since commencing operation, the system has exceeded expectations for availability and the amount of power brought onto Long Island. The Neptune Regional Transmission System includes two converter stations, an undersea cable that extends approximately 50 miles underneath the Raritan River and the Atlantic Ocean, and an underground cable that extends up the shoulder of the Wantagh Parkway on Long Island.
