GL Roofing wins Viking Link contract

GL Roofing has been appointed as the building envelope sub-contractor at a renewable energy exchange project between the UK and Denmark.

GL Roofing wins Viking Link contract

Viking Link is a partnership between the UK’s National Grid and Denmark’s Energienet which will establish an interconnector spanning 765km from Jutland, Denmark, to Bicker Fen in Boston, Lincolnshire, enabling energy to be exchanged between the two countries. The project resembles a significant step in the UK journey to net zero carbon, with Viking Link helping the UK government meet its carbon reduction commitments by providing access to a well-developed, low-cost renewable energy market.

The Lincolnshire element of the project is equivalent to the size of 12 football pitches which will enable the importing and exporting of energy via the 765km subsea and underground cable (the longest in the world when constructed).

GL Roofing’s element of the project commenced on-site this week.
