Nemo Link to Import European Energy into Britain

By : Business Save |January 15, 2019 |Energy Blog |0 Comment

The first of a new wave of energy interconnectors is about to go online. The Nemo Link will connect the energy systems in the UK to the energy systems in Belgium.

The project has cost around £600 million and consists of a cable running along the seabed. The route it runs stretches for eighty miles between the two sites. The two places connected are Richborough in Kent and Zeebrugge in Belgium, which is the seaport and subdivision of Bruges. It is the first energy interconnector built since 2011 and the first linking the UK to Belgium.

Final testing is underway, and it is expected to be switched on and start transmitting power in early 2019.
