Project Comments The 2 x 700 MW cables join the UK and France via Alderney, the link is seen as an enabling project for the tidal project, Race Tidal, that could be connect to the interconnector. Any tidal project wishing to connect into the link would have to build an AC/DC converter on Alderney. A third converter could be supplied under an extension to the current tender this would be dependant on the schedule of the interconnector and the tidal project. If created this would create a multi-terminal system. This scenario of adding a third onshore converter, if applicable, is cheaper than adding an offshore converter. The breakdown of the distances are: 4 to 5 km AC cable between the UK substation and converter-20 km DC onshore cables UK-140 km DC offshore cable UK to Alderney-1 km onshore cables across Alderney-30 km DC cables between Alderney and France-25 km onshore DC cables France. Voltage Sourced Converters (VSC) are the preferred converter technology due to its simpler design, has fewer or no filters when compared to Line Communicated Converters (LCC), and it enables the use of XLPE or MI cables, unlike LLC which is limited to MI. The landing points on Alderney are Longis Bay in the south towards France and Corblets beach in the north towards the UK. Cap and Floor Window 1 project.
