Second interconnector between Belgium and the UK

New interconnectors are required in order to strengthen the European electricity market, facilitate the energy transition and overcome the challenges associated with it. For these aims to be achieved, the North-South axis must be reinforced and East-West connections must be built. These needs have been clearly established at European level in the Ten-Year Network Development Plan (TYNDP).

The European Commission has recognised the future second interconnector between Belgium and the UK (Nautilus) as a Project of Common Interest (PCI), highlighting its importance within the wider European context. Elia and National Grid Ventures are currently further examining the new interconnector's location, route, capacity, general feasibility and construction schedule.
