IFA2 is a 1,000 MW high voltage direct current (HVDC) electrical interconnector currently under construction between the British and French transmission systems. It will be the second link to France that National Grid has developed with RTE.
In line with current government guidelines in the United Kingdom and France, essential work on the IFA2 interconnector project continues. Some of the activities are works that need to take place today, to ensure the running of the network tomorrow.
The welfare and safety of our employees, contractors and the local community remains our priority. All of the people who need to continue working on site and in the community, are doing so under stringent health and safety measures to protect not just themselves but also the communities in which we operate.
At this current time, it is too early to take an assessment on the impacts of COVID-19 on the construction of IFA2, however we shall update you in due course.
