NorthConnect study inclusion of fibre-optic scope

NorthConnect has investigated the inclusion of a repeaterless fibre-optic data cable in the project, and initial findings show it will be technically feasible and very cost-effective when combined with the power cable design, manufacture and subsea installation. The commercial aspects are being examined further, but NorthConnect has a unique geographic advantage where it meets the Norwegian and UK coastlines, crossing strong, existing fibre-optic links very close to the world class oil and gas centres of both Stavanger and Aberdeen. This will also provide a significant opportunity to Norway for the development of data-centres in the Rogaland region.
