Icelink is a proposed electricity interconnector between Iceland and Great Britain. As of 2017, the project is still at the feasibility stage.[1] According to current plans, IceLink may become operational in 2027.[2]

At 1000–1200 km, the 1000 MW HVDC link would be the longest sub-sea power interconnector in the world.[3]

The project partners are National Grid plc in the UK, and Landsvirkjun, the state-owned generator in Iceland, and Landsnet, the Icelandic Transmission System Operator (TSO).[1]
