Meridiam is the lead developer of an electricity interconnector project linking the UK to Germany through a 725 km – 1.4GW HVDC bi-directional submarine cable (2 x 525 kV).
The Project benefits from a strong economic, social and political rationale as it is essential to the security of electricity supply of both countries, helps manage intermittency associated with growing renewable energy installed capacity and alleviates the current grid congestion in northern Germany. It will contribute to securing supply in the UK by harnessing the growing offshore wind surplus located in Northern Germany.
The Project implementation will result in a net reduction in carbon emissions of 13Mt CO2 over the 25 years which is the equivalent of planting ca. 28 million tree or removing ca. 400,000 cars off the road per year.
