The neuconnect interconnector

Project Overview

NeuConnect will construct new converter stations on the Isle of Grain in Kent, England and the Wilhelmshaven region in Lower Saxony, northern Germany, connected by subsea cables travelling through British, Dutch and German waters. 

NeuConnect Britain Ltd. based in London, is responsible for all aspects of the project in the UK (as well as construction works in Dutch waters), with NeuConnect Deutschland GmbH & Co. KG, based in Wilhelmshaven, responsible for all aspects of the project in Germany.

The role of interconnectors

Many countries, including Germany and Great Britain, have identified a long-term need for interconnectors as they help to integrate energy markets, increase competition and security of supply, and deliver value for money for consumers.

NeuConnect’s investors

The key partners bring a proven track record in delivering large-scale energy infrastructure, creating a team with significant experience and expertise in interconnector projects. In addition, the key partners’ investment approach is aligned to UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), helping to ensure that NeuConnect is being delivered to the highest sustainability standards.

Lead-investor Meridiam is founded on an ethos of taking a long-term approach to its investments, meaning the NeuConnect project will further benefit from Meridiam’s long-term commitment to invest in, develop and manage the asset over 25 years and beyond.
