Belgium and the United Kingdom have signed a new cooperation agreement to build a second interconnection besides the existing electrical interconnector, Nemo-Link.
The new link, which would be connected to an energy island, is a hybrid interconnection. This dual function means that power can be exchanged directly between the 2 countries and new offshore wind farms can also be connected to it. This memorandum of understanding also deepens the UK and Belgium’s bilateral relationship and enables closer working on important energy priorities including:
- multipurpose electricity interconnection
- offshore wind
- low carbon hydrogen
- carbon capture, usage and storage (CCUS)
