UK-Norway grid link – ABB wins order

ABB has been awarded a £288m contract to link the power grids of the UK and Norway. The company aims to increase security of supply for both countries and support the integration of wind and hydroelectric power into their networks. The UK-Norway Interconnector (NSN), which is expected to be 730 kilometres long and have a capacity of 1.4GW, is owned by National Grid and Norwegian transmission system operator Statnett. ABB will supply high-voltage direct current (HVDC) converter stations at both ends of the North Sea. Claudio Facchin, President of ABB Power Systems division said: “HVDC is a proven solution for the integration of renewables and the reliable and efficient long distance transmission of power, often subsea or underground.” The interconnector, which is said to be the world’s longest subsea power link, is scheduled to be completed in 2021.

What our Customers say…

'The survey was to a much higher level of service than we had seen from others. The survey was very thorough rather than the "the fitters would sort that out on the day" that we had from others. Communications were prompt and they carried out our installation quickly to make sure we beat a drop in the feed in tariff'

‘If you are looking for the installation of solar panels, then Redmile Energy are the people to approach! After a thorough survey of our home, they gave us three quotes then arranged a date for installation within three weeks, all of this at less than half the price of the “big boys” for exactly the same panels!'

'No pushy salesmen here, just people who appeared honest and straightforward. I had quotes or visits from other companies, but found their sales people far too intimidating. All work completely neatly and tidily on time and to agreed budget.  Could not ask for more.'
