AQUIND Interconnector development proposals – public consultation

AQUIND Interconnector is a new subsea and underground High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) electric power transmission link between the South Coast of England and Normandy in France. This proposal sees a new interconnector cable coming ashore at Eastney and being routed via underground trenches through the road system of Portsmouth to a new Converter Station at Lovedean. For further details, please refer to the AQUIND Consultation website.

Following an initial round of consultation in January 2018, AQUIND is now undertaking statutory consultation on its proposals for AQUIND Interconnector between Wednesday 27 February 2019 and Monday 29 April 2019.

The purpose of this consultation is to seek informed feedback on the proposal which may be taken into account as it is further developed prior to the submission of an application for a Development Consent Order that would seek the permissions and powers required to build and operate AQUIND Interconnector in the UK.
