National Grid awards contracts for Britain-Norway electricity link

LONDON, July 14 (Reuters) - Britain's National Grid has awarded contracts totalling 1.5 billion euros ($1.7 billion) to companies involved in building the first electricity link between Britain and Norway, it said on Tuesday.

Three international companies have agreed to build the interconnector -- cable suppliers Prysmian and Nexans and power technology company ABB will deliver the convertor stations.

The so-called NSN Link will be 740 km long and will establish a direct connection between the two countries' energy systems.
