Norway postpones decision on NorthConnect power cable to Scotland

The Ministry of Petroleum and Energy in Norway announced on 25 March that it does “not have sufficient grounds” to process NorthConnect’s license applications.

NorthConnect is a proposed power cable connecting Norway and Scotland, owned by four public power companies: Lyse, Hafslund E-Co, Agder Energi and Vattenfall.

Communications Manager in Norway, Lars Nermoen, said: “Together with our owners, we will now consider what the Ministry’s message means for the project”.
