The Richborough Connection
National Grid is developing the Richborough Connection project to connect a high-voltage electricity link between Belgium and Richborrugh near Sandwick in Kent, known as the Nemo Link®. There is no high-voltage National Grid electricity network in the Richborough area, so we will need to build a new connection to join Richborough to our existing network approximately 20km away, near Canterbury.
The North West Coast Connection
National Grid is developing the North West Coast Connections (NWCC) project to connect and export the electricity that will be generated by Moorside, the nuclear power station NuGeneration Ltd is proposing to build near Sellafield in West Cumbria.
