Currently, ZTT Group - leading global manufacturer of cable systems, was awarded by Fugro-TSM Pty Ltd (FTSM) to supply one 15.3 km 33kV XLPE insulated submarine composite cable to Kangaroo island. It will be the third submarine composite cable by end user SA Power Networks (SAPN) to connect southern Fleurieu Peninsula, south of Adelaide and the island, which is with a population of 4,500 and attracts many tourists every year. The new 33kV cable will be able to transmit 20 MVA to replace old 33kV one with transmission capacity of 10 MVA.
