We have considered and assessed a number of options for marine cable landfall locations, converter station sites and interlinking HVDC cable corridors, as well as a HVAC connection between converter site and the nearby electricity transmission system.

We have narrowed these options down to a single converter station site, for which we have identified preferred route corridors for the HVDC and HVAC connection infrastructure.

The route of the underground cables into the converter station is subject to further design work and technical assessments. Our plans therefore show wide cable route ‘corridors’ from Pegwell Bay into the converter station ‘search area’, and then onward HVAC connection to the Richborough to Canterbury overhead line. We would not need all of the land within the route corridors to install the HVDC cables and HVAC cable or overhead line connections.
