January 14, 2019

Viking Link, an electricity link between Denmark and the UK has been given the green light by the government. The  a proposed 473-mile (761km) electricity cable between Bicker Fen, near Boston, and Revsing, in southern Jutland.

The cable running from the Lincolnshire coast to Denmark, uniting UK offshore wind with the sector’s pioneering nation. The GBP1.8 billion (USD 2.31 bln) project hits UK landfall between Sandilands and Anderby Creek.

It will include about 40 miles of underground cables before it reaches landfall, running between Bicker Fen near Boston - where Grimsby’s latest offshore wind farm Triton Knoll will also feed in to - and a substation in Southern Jutland, Denmark.

National Grid and Energinet hold a 50/50 share of Viking Link. Viking Link is now in a position to place contracts for the construction of the interconnector after the required consents and licenses have been achieved.

Over the coming months, Viking Link will be busy working with interested parties to progress land agreements in Great Britain and in Denmark. A competitive procurement process for the construction of the link is well underway, with contracts scheduled to be awarded Q2 2019.
