The Irish NGN invites UK NGN members to join them for a trip to the East-West Interconnector (EWIC) which is a high-voltage direct current submarine and subsoil power cable which connects the Irish and British electricity markets. At 262km in length, 186km of which is beneath the Irish Sea, the East West Interconnector links the electricity transmission grids of Ireland and Great Britain, from converter stations at Portan in Ireland to Shotton in Wales.  The event to be held on the 11th July 2019 will be composed of a series of technical presentations on HVDC research and experience from the Industry experts along with a tour of the converter station.
