There are three main sections to the construction of EGL2:
Northern point of connection
In Peterhead, Aberdeenshire, we will build a new onshore converter station and install underground cabling from the converter station to landfall at Sandford Bay
Marine cable route
Subsea cabling will be installed from Sandford Bay, through Scottish and English waters to landfall at Wilsthorpe, England
Southern point of connection
Onshore underground cable will be installed from landfall in Wilsthorpe to a new onshore converter station built in Drax, England
The EGL2 HVDC cable connection from Scotland to England consists of 436km of submarine cable and 69km of onshore cable.
