In addition to the 26 miles of buried cable, the facilities will also include land-based high-voltage direct current converter terminal facilities. TransEnergie explains that the cable will be a fully-controlled, direct current electric transmission line and will not be integrated with the alternating current (AC) transmission grids located at either end of the line.
