The power cable to the UK is temporarily out of operation – but that doesn’t mean electricity in Norway will become cheaper

An error on the British side has led to the North Sea Link power cable being out of operation since Tuesday night.

“The cable to Great Britain fell out last night at half-past six, after an error on the British side. We are now troubleshooting,” communications director Henrik Glette in Statnett told E24.

The cable was put into operation in October and has mostly sent electricity from Norway to the UK due to high prices on the British side. 

The error has not been identified yet. 

“The preliminary message is that it is out of operation for the day,” communications manager Irene Meldal in Statnett told NTB.

She denies that this will immediately lead to cheaper electricity in Norway. So far, the market has not had time to react to the news.
