Plans for new power cable to the Netherlands

Norway's Statnett has submitted plans to the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) for a second power cable between Norway and the Netherlands (NorNed2).

Statnett is preparing to install the cable in cooperation with the Dutch Transmission System Operator (TSO) TenneT.

A comprehensive concession/planning process was carried out prior to the first NorNed cable between Norway and the Netherlands, built in 2008. NorNed2 will be connected to the grid at Feda taking advantage of the existing NorNed infrastructure.

A total expansion plan for the Feda area is currently being made to facilitate connections of the planned cable projects to Germany and NorNed2 as well as necessary grid reinforcements.
