Nemo Link project substation arrives at Ramsgate Port

A substation shipment for the Nemo Link project, an electricity link between Herdersbrug near Bruges in Belgium and Richborough, near Sandwich in Kent, UK has arrived at Ramsgate Port in south-east England.

Nemo Link will consist of subsea and underground cables connected to a converter station and an electricity substation in each country, which will allow electricity to flow in either direction between the two countries.

The site for the converter station and electricity substation in the UK is a plot formerly occupied by the Richborough Power Station, which now forms part of the Richborough Energy Park.

Four power transformers have been delivered to the site.

Nemo Link is due to be operational in late 2018/early 2019.
