International evidence shows Interconnector can go underground – Carthy

September 15, 2017

International evidence proves the North/South Interconnector can go underground. That’s according to the Sinn Fein MEP Matt Carthy. He says the Belgian electricity operator Elia is currently developing an interconnector between Belgium and Germany. Mr Carthy says it’s going to be entirely underground and it’s similar to the one being planned by Eirgrid for Ireland. Last week the Midlands North-West MEP hosted a delegation from Ireland who visited the Belgian electricity company to hear about their interconnector project.
