SunCable Manufacturing

SunCable is in discussions with global cable manufacturers to jointly develop, construct and operate an advanced high voltage (HV) cable manufacturing facility, with the AAPowerLink project from Darwin to Singapore as an anchor customer.

This multibillion-dollar investment in Australian advanced manufacturing will deliver enduring benefits for 40+ years. It will create around 800–1000 jobs during construction and more than 400 ongoing operational jobs.

Australia has abundant sunshine and wind. High voltage direct current (HVDC) cable enables the transportation of these renewable resources around the country and throughout the region, establishing Australia as a renewable energy superpower as well as an advanced manufacturing hub for critical supply chains.

This advanced cable manufacturing facility will be the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, manufacturing HV transmission cables that are essential in the energy transition. These cables unlock renewables generation capacity, transmitting clean energy to industry, business, and our homes.

Community Information Sessions

On Thursday 1 February 2024, SunCable will be holding two community information sessions:

  • Session 1 - 3pm to 4:30pm
  • Session 2 - 5:30pm to 7pm
  • Venue: meeting room at the Beauty Point Waterfront Hotel. The room will accommodate 25 people per session.

Each session will include a presentation by the Project Manager, an opportunity for conversation on the proposal and light refreshments. Sessions will be limited to 25 people due to space; more sessions will be held over the next few months and information will be updated on this website

Project Update

SunCable has been working with jurisdictions across Southeast Asia and Australia over the last two years, assessing potential sites for this advanced cable manufacturing facility. 

As part of this process, we are progressing detailed studies and due diligence on a potential site in Bell Bay, Tasmania. Any final decision to progress development applications for this site will be made after initial community consultation.

Our criteria for potential sites include:
