TAIPEI: State-owned TAIWAN POWER CO. announced Monday a plan to construct a 60 kilometre undersea electric cable linking Taiwan proper and its outlying island of Penghu as part of the company's efforts to secure supplies of wind-powered electricity between the two places. The NT$14.68 billion (US$445 million) plan is currently undergoing an environmental impact assessment, a company spokesman said, who estimated that the entire project will be finished in November 2012 if the assessment is completed by the end of this year.

* Once the cable is completed, wind-powered electricity on Penghu could be produced on a massive scale, the spokesman noted.

* The undersea electric cable will serve as a backup system, but one which the spokesman said must be put in place in advance.
