Project Comments As well as the submarine interconnector infrastructure on the Isle of Lewis is to be upgraded, under the Lewis infrastructure works. The initial plan was for two new onshore circuits to link Stornoway and Gravir, the amount of capacity that needs to be transferred is lower than original estimates and therefore it is foreseen that only one circuit is required.
