Intertek to Support FAB Interconnector Project

Intertek has been appointed by FAB Link to provide marine environmental and planning support for the France-Alderney-Britain (FAB) Project – a proposed underwater interconnector between France and Great Britain via the island of Alderney.

The construction of the project, consisting of two pairs of electrical cables, is expected to start in 2018. The interconnector will be linked to the electrical substations at Menuel, on the Cotentin peninsula in France, and near Exeter, in England.

Intertek will be responsible for coordinating pre-application consultation, consent applications and consent compliance activities for FAB Link’s offshore infrastructure between UK landfall and southern extent of Alderney waters. This will include delivery of a marine licence application to the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) in England and a Food and Environment Protection Act (FEPA) licence application to the States of Guernsey for protection of the seabed required during the cable installation process.

Frank Beiboer, Managing Director of Intertek Energy & Water, said: “With a submarine power cable track record which spans more than 15 years and 10 interconnector projects, we are pleased to have been selected by FAB Link and look forward to working closely with their project team to develop this major international offshore infrastructure project.”

This project is being jointly developed by RTE and FAB Link.
