Why are you connecting at Bicker Fen substation in Great Britain?

National Grid Viking Link (NGVL), the company developing Viking Link, applied to National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) for a connection to the national electricity transmission network. NGET undertook a study of possible connection points and a number of different options were considered along the east of England. NGET, together with NGVL, identified Bicker Fen substation as the most appropriate connection point.

Details of all the options identified and the assessments are included in a Strategic Options Report produced by NGVL. You can find this report in the Project Documents section of the website.
