France-Ireland interconnector makes waves with cable installation

The Celtic Interconnector project has begun installing the HVAC cable in Ireland, advancing the subsea power link between Ireland and France

The Celtic Interconnector project, a subsea power cable linking the electricity grids of Ireland and France, has reached a milestone with the commencement of the high voltage alternating current (HVAC) cable installation in Ireland.

This step is crucial in progressing the energy infrastructure project, which aims to enhance connectivity and energy security between the two countries.

The project, developed by EirGrid, Ireland’s electricity transmission system operator, and the French operator, RTE (Réseau de Transport d’Électricité), will enable the transfer of electricity sufficient to power 450,000 homes.

Upon completion, the Celtic Interconnector will run from Knockraha in east Cork, under the sea, to the French connection point in La Martyre, Finistère.
