UltraMAP has been awarded the contract to provide monitoring services for the NEMO Link® project in partnership with system integrator Vysiion Ltd.
AssetMonitor will be used 24/7 to help protect the cable system from vessel damage, initially while NEMO Link® is being laid until it is commissioned in 2019.
NEMO Link® is a joint project between National Grid Interconnector Limited, a subsidiary company of the UK’s National Grid Plc, and the Belgian Elia group. The project will give both countries improved reliability and access to electricity and sustainable generation.
The Nemo Link® interconnector will consist of subsea and underground cables connected to a converter station in each country, which will allow electricity to flow in either direction between the two countries. Nemo Link® will build the converter station on an 8 hectare site, formerly occupied by the Richborough Power Station, which now forms part of the Richborough Energy Park proposals. A similar converter station will be built in the industry zone Herdersbrug in Bruges.
The interconnector will be commissioned in early 2019.
NEMO Link® has been selected as a Project of Common Interest (PCI) under the European Commission, and is granted financial support from the EU. For more information, please visit the Commission´s website about PCI projects.
