Viking Link to hold Public Information Events in the UK

In June 2017, Viking Link will be holding a series of Public Information Events to provide updates on the progress of its draft proposals for the UK Onshore Scheme.

The UK Onshore Scheme comprises the installation of underground direct current (DC) cables from the landfall in Boygrift, East Lindsey to a converter station in North Ing Drove, South Holland (to be constructed along with a permanent access road), as well as the installation of underground alternating current (AC) cables from the converter station to the existing substation at Bicker Fen.

The Public Information Events are being held before the project submits its planning applications to the following affected Local Planning Authorities during summer 2017:

  • East Lindsey District Council
  • Boston Borough Council
  • North Kesteven District Council
  • South Holland District Council

The events will take place as follows:
