A A$30 billion-plus ($30 billion) bid to export Australian solar power to Singapore via a 4,200-kilometer (2,600-mile) cable has taken another step forward after clearing a crucial approval hurdle.

Indonesia has recommended the route that transmission cables for the Australia-Asia Powerlink can be laid through its territorial waters, project owner Sun Cable Pty Ltd said in a statement Thursday. The government in Jakarta has also granted the subsea survey permit required, it said.

The company plans to use the high-voltage cable to supply enough electricity to meet 15% of Singapore’s demand from a giant solar and battery complex deep in the Outback.
