The Viking Link Project is a 1400 MW high voltage direct current (DC) electricity link between the British and Danish transmission systems connecting at Bicker Fen substation in Lincolnshire and Revsing substation in southern Jutland, Denmark.
Working in conjunction with Siemens Europe & Hilti UK, we are proud to have been involved the the Viking Link Project, The fire stopping on this project has been some of the largest penetrations we have sealed on any project before.
The project involves the construction of converter sites and installation of onshore and offshore cable in each country. These are then connected to the substations.
Viking Link will be approximately 765 km long and will allow electricity to be exchanged between Great Britain and Denmark.
The interconnector will enable the more effective use of renewable energy, access to sustainable electricity generation and improved security of electricity supplies. It will benefit the socio economy of both countries.
