GB Interconnector Licence Issued To FAB Link Power Interconnector

FAB Link, a joint venture company developing a power interconnector between the UK and France, that will also connect tidal generated power in Alderney, has been granted an interconnector licence by Ofgem, the British energy regulator.

The licence grants FAB Link Ltd the right to own and operate the project, and provides certain associated powers. This represents the latest step in the development of the France-Alderney-Britain (FAB Link) project which has been designated as a key energy infrastructure project by the European Union and was one of the projects that won the support of UK prime minister David Cameron at the Anglo-French energy summit in 2012.
