The Viking Link Converter station in Lincolnshire has received a BREEAM Infrastructure ‘Very Good’ certification.

Viking Link, a 1.4GW high voltage electricity connection between the UK and Denmark, was developed by National Grid and Energinet.

The project, costing £1.7 billion, aims to power 2.5 million homes and save UK consumers £500 million over the next decade.

Siemens Energy constructed the UK converter station at Bicker Fen, enabling power transfer between the two countries.

The project’s adherence to sustainability practices resulted in significant carbon reduction, recognised by the BREEAM Infrastructure assessment.

Phillip Spain, Project Director at National Grid, said: “Supporting the decarbonisation of the UK and Denmark is one of the core reasons why we developed Viking Link in the first place, and we are delighted that it has been awarded BREEAM Infrastructure certification.”
