Britain's National Grid has begun construction on its 1.4 GW, 765-km "Viking Link"- the world's longest interconnector system that will allow the exchange of clean electricity between Denmark and the UK.
The £1.8 billion Viking Link is a High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) interconnector that will connect both countries through submarine cables between Bicker Fen in Lincolnshire, England, and Revsing in South Jutland, Denmark. This connection will allow clean energy to be shared between the two nations which according to the National Grid represents a major milestone in the UK's efforts to reach net-zero emissions.
The project, a collaboration between the National Grid Ventures (UK's National Grid) and the Danish electricity system owner Energinet is set to be completed in 2023.
