The proposed 761-km (473-mile) HVDC Viking Link electricity network connecting the UK and Denmark has taken a step closer to actualizing.

A bid for 64 km of underground cable across the Lincolnshire, UK countryside is currently being considered.

Co-financed by the European Union, the U.S. $2.26 billion project sees the National Grid and Denmark’s Energinet.dk working together on this project, set to begin operating in 2022.
