A key milestone for a third Anglo-French interconnector project has been reached after it was signed off by the UK’s marine regulator.

Dubbed the Interconnexion France-Angleterre 2 (IFA2), the one gigawatt project was rubberstamped by the Marine Management Organisation on Tuesday.

The IFA2 has become the first GB connector to have received all its environmental permits and consents under the Trans-European Networks – Energy (TEN-E) Regulation. The IFA2 will be the third Anglo-French interconnector to be built since 1986.
