Guardian Geomatics Awarded Prestigious Cable Route Survey Contract by Sun Cable



Guardian Geomatics Pty. Ltd. is pleased to announce we have been awarded a prestigious cable route survey contract by Sun Cable Pty. Ltd. This initial survey is a major step toward an exciting, multi billion-dollar project, described as exporting “sunshine” to Asia; the Australia- ASEAN Power Link.

The high profile, groundbreaking initiative has seen its fair share of media attention – and for good reason. The ambitious plan envisions an impressive solar and battery storage farm, laid out across thousands of hectares in the Northern Territory. The dispatchable renewable electricity will be supplied to Darwin, Singapore and Indonesia. Singapore and Indonesia will be supplied via a ~3,800km high voltage direct current submarine cable transmission route. Guardian Geomatics will be undertaking the cable route survey between Darwin and Singapore. This Sun Cable project has been touted as a “game-changer” for an economy reliant on coal and gas export revenues.

Guardian Geomatics Commercial Director, Steve Duffield said, “Guardian Geomatics are always on the lookout for opportunities to improve our footprint and sustainability – this project is a step in the right direction and something we are very proud of.” Sun Cable CEO and Founder, David Griffin said, “Sun Cable is thrilled to have engaged Guardian Geomatics to undertake this critical survey work. They are performing work that will be critical to the success of the Australia-ASEAN Power Link”.

Project preparations will commence this month, with initial plans to utilise sister company Guardian Offshore’s vessel “Offshore Solution” to deliver the work, starting later in 2020. For more information on this multi billion-dollar renewable energy project visit Sun Cable.
