Viking Link Interconnector is a 767km-long, high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission link to interconnect the electricity networks of Denmark and Great Britain.
The Viking Link HVDC Interconnector will allow the bi-directional transmission of up to 1.4GW of clean energy between the UK and Denmark, ensuring a reliable electricity supply in both countries. The project is being developed jointly by National Grid and Energinet, while Siemens Energy is the lead contractor for the 1,400 MW interconnector.
