There have been some changes to the timing of new generation projects in East Anglia region, in particular, changes to the connection dates for East Anglia Offshore Wind, which changes when the Bramford to Twinstead connection needs to be built.
We are putting the project on temporary hold for a number of years. We will use this time to work closely with all the generators in East Anglia to ensure we understand their timescales for their developments and our programmes are aligned.
The proposed 400,000 volt overhead line and underground cable will still be needed to connect new sources of power, including low carbon electricity, to replace old coal and nuclear power stations that are closing. In the meantime we will continue to work closely with the generators in the region to ensure we deliver the connection at the right time.
