The NordLink project is the first transnational 1,400 MW high-voltage direct current (HVDC) transmission link from southern Norway to Germany (Schleswig-Holstein) with a route length of approx. 623 kilometres. NordLink is scheduled to go into operation in autumn 2020 and is one of the most important projects in the European energy sector.
NordLink will enable the exchange of renewable energies, especially hydropower from Norway and wind power from Germany. Offshore, 516 kilometres of submarine cable and onshore 53 kilometres of overhead line will be laid in Norway and 54 kilometres of underground cable in Germany (Büsum to Wilster).
