Rabat – Xlinks, a British green energy company, will build the twin high-voltage subsea cables that will be transferring green electricity from Morocco to the United Kingdom in a new factory in Scotland. Xlinks is set to build a factory in Hunterston, Scotland. The factory’s first output will be the Morocco-UK Power Projects, according to Electrek, an energy-focused news outlet.
The new factory is set to produce four 3,800 km subsea cables for the first phase of the Morocco-UK Power Project. Over the first phase stretching between 2025 and 2027, Xlinks will connect Moroccan solar energy with Alverdiscott in North Devon.
For the construction of the undersea cables, the British manufacturer will need an estimated 90,000 metric tons of steel. The company had signed a charter with the UK parliament to use British steel, the Electrek report says.
