East Anglia GREEN high voltage network reinforcement between Norwich and Bramford

 Residents should have received recently an information pack regarding The East Anglia Green Energy Enablement (East Anglia GREEN).  They are running public consultation process that closes on Thursday 16 June. 

 From their info pack:

East Anglia GREEN is a proposal to build a new high voltage network reinforcement between Norwich, Bramford and Tilbury. While our existing high voltage electricity network in East Anglia has been sufficient until today, it doesn’t have the capability needed to reliably and securely transport all the energy that will be connected by 2030 while working to the required standards. 

The network reinforcement that East Anglia GREEN will provide would be achieved by the construction and operation of a new 400 kV electricity transmission line over a distance of approximately 180 km and a new 400 kV connection substation.

The reinforcement would comprise mostly overhead line (including pylons and conductors – the ‘line’ part), underground cabling through the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), works at existing substations at Norwich, Bramford and Tilbury and a new 400 kV connection substation in the Tendring district. 

East Anglia GREEN will play a vital role in delivering electricity efficiently, reliably, and safely and will support the UK’s move to reduce carbon emissions.
