FAB Project to make updated planning application

FAB Link Limited intend to submit an updated planning application to East Devon District Council for their converter station site to the east of the Harriers Court Industrial Estate, near Exeter airport.

FAB Link and RTE, the promoters of the FAB Project, have amended the design of the project from a capacity of 1400MW to 1250MW to reduce the overall impact of the project and to increase its cost efficiency.

James Dickson, the FAB Link Project Director, said: “There have been advancements in interconnector technology since the original design was decided upon. This update gives the project the benefits of modern, proven equipment so we are almost able to achieve with a single pair of cables, that which was previously based upon two pairs.”
