  • In 2003 National Grid and Statnett (the Norwegian grid operator) obtained environmental permits for a 1200MW interconnector between Easington, County Durham, and Suldal in Rogaland County. At the time, however, it was not possible to find a commercial structure that satisfied the requirements of National Grid, Statnett and the Norwegian Government. National Grid and Statnett are continuing to study alternative structures that would make the construction of this project possible.
    The development and environmental permitting of this project was partly funded by the European Commission's Trans European Networks - Energy (TEN-E) programme.
