Due to the current licence for allocation of connection points to the NETS, held by National Grid (NG) plc, the allocation of planned connections from offshore developers is on "a first come first served" basis and not co-ordinated.
The most expeditious routing to the NETS will not be utilised which will have a detrimental environmental impact for the on-shore environment.
Norfolk Vanguard's cables are planned to cross with the cables from the Hornsea Three project but the combined impact from both projects, at the crossing point has not been fully examined, despite the potential for up-to 6GW of energy flowing through this point. Vattenfall have yet to divulge how they plan to engineer the crossing point or what the combined environmental effects will be.
