Sun Cable announces AUD210 million Series B capital raise

15 Mar 2022 10:20 AM | Stephanie Berlin (Administrator)

Sun Cable has completed a AUD210 million Series B capital raise with their existing shareholders to fund the development work of the Company’s marquee project, the Australia-Asia PowerLink (AAPowerLink), as well as accelerate the progress of the Company’s portfolio of multi gigawatt generation and transmission projects.

Led by Grok Ventures and Squadron Energy (a wholly owned subsidiary of Tattarang), the capital raise will support Sun Cable’s development of the world’s largest intercontinental renewable power system, connecting Australia to Singapore, and its mission, to supply renewable electricity from resource abundant regions to growing load centres, at scale. Enabled by a team of over 80 experts, Sun Cable has developed unique intellectual property to facilitate the optimal design of complex dispatchable renewable electricity generation and transmission projects.

Sun Cable’s flagship project, the AAPowerLink will harness and store solar energy from the Northern Territory in Australia and transmit it to Darwin and Singapore via a high voltage direct current (HVDC) cable transmission system.

David Griffin, Sun Cable Founder & CEO says “We have developed a world leading capability in four short years. We are thrilled to have materially strengthened our resources with the support of all of our shareholders, who are such strong advocates for our mission. This capital raise will enable the delivery of renewable solar power from Australia to Singapore, advance our other multi gigawatt scale projects, and support the progress of key facilitating assets.

“We are buoyed by the level of support from our investors and key stakeholders including governments, offtakers, suppliers, and the communities in which we operate,” he continues.

Dr Andrew Forrest AO, Chairman of Tattarang says “Sun Cable’s vision will transform Australia’s capability to become a world-leading generator and exporter of renewable electricity and enable decarbonisation. I’m proud to be a cornerstone investor in Sun Cable, its team and its vision. This capital raise is a critical step in developing the Australia-Asia PowerLink and I applaud Sun Cable realising this mission.”

Mike Cannon-Brookes, Principal of Grok Ventures says, "This brings Australia one step closer to realising our renewables exporting potential. We can power the world with clean energy and Sun Cable is harnessing that at scale. It's a blueprint for how we export energy across the world. We fully back this vision."
