The proposed route offers the most efficient installation between Eurotunnel and the National Grid substation at Sellindge.

Detailed surveys have been undertaken to reduce the environmental impacts and construction time in Kent, and the project benefits from the use of the existing Channel Tunnel for much of the cable’s journey.

The proposed 51km (High Voltage Direct Current) HVDC cable will stretch between National Grid’s Sellindge 400kV substation in Kent and RTE’s Les Mandarins 400kV substation at Peuplinques in Nord-Pas de Calais, passing through the Channel Tunnel.

The HVDC cables will be located in the Channel Tunnel’s north rail tunnel and benefit from having primary utilities, including cooling equipment, already installed.

Crossovers enable trains to pass from the north rail tunnel to the south rail tunnel and vice versa, thereby allowing ElecLink to isolate sections of the north rail tunnel when carrying out the necessary installation works during construction, as well as inspection and maintenance throughout the operating life of the project.
