South Korea-based Taihan Cable and Solution (Taihan), an electric wire manufacturer, has secured a contract from SP PowerAssets for the construction of a 400kV high voltage cable power grid in Singapore. The underground power grid project located on Jurong Island is valued at USD50 million.

Taihan will provide cables and connection materials, as well as complete project work in a full turn-key manner, including power grid design, installation, connection, and testing. The 400kV power grid will be one of the highest voltages used in Singapore and to ensure stability, the grid will be subject to a thorough review of technology and quality before operation commences.
