Project Description

Guernsey Electricity in partnership with Réseau de Transport d'Electricite (RTE) are proposing to install a subsea cable between the Vale parish in Guernsey and La Manche in France.

The cable is likely to be specified as a 90kV and will include the installation of a new substation in Guernsey and connections into the electricity grids at each end.

The land route in France will be developed, permitted and installed by RTE.
