On 8th March 2013 National Grid Nemo Link Limited was granted an electricity interconnector licence by the Gas & Electricity Markets Authority (Ofgem).
The license authorises National Grid Nemo Link Limited to participate in the operation of the Nemo Link® – an electricity interconnector between Great Britain and Belgium.
The Nemo Link® interconnector will consist of subsea and underground cables connected to a converter station and an electricity substation in each country, which will allow electricity to flow in either direction between the two countries.
An electricity interconnector licence is required under the Electricity Act 1989 and cannot be held in conjunction with any other electricity licence.
