These cables are presently suitable for voltages of up to 500 kV DC. The insulation consists of high-density paper tapes impregnated with a high-viscosity compound, which does not require fluid pressure feeding. These cables can be installed in high voltage DC links in very long lengths, up to several hundreds of kilometres. Present experience or trials are limited to water depths in the range of 1000 m, but deeper waters can be reached by using special design features.
