400 kV submarine cable in the Shannon Estuary
The Cross Shannon Cable Project is a submarine cable that will link the electricity substation at Kilpaddoge in North Kerry to the Moneypoint generating station in Clare.
Planning approval was received from An Bord Pleanála in June 2021. We plan to construct the Cross Shannon Cable project in 2022 and 2023.
There are large amounts of renewable electricity generation being connected to the electricity grid in the south and west of Ireland. During times of high wind, the Cross Shannon Cable Project will facilitate the flow of this power to the east of the country.
