ElecLink: Groupe Eurotunnel takes control of strategic infrastructure


Groupe Eurotunnel has completed the acquisition of Star Capital’s 51% holding in ElecLink for €75 million, equivalent to a value of €147 million for 100% of the capital of the company.
ElecLink will build and operate a 1,000MW high-voltage electricity interconnector between the United  Kingdom and France.
Construction  of the €500m + project must start before 31 July 2017 and the interconnector must start operating  before 31 July 2020.
Steven Moore has been confirmed in the role of Chief Executive Officer. In the context of energy transition and the risks of domestic electricity generation not meeting demand in the  future, the United Kingdom and France will be able  to benefit from greater security and flexibility of energy supply.
Jacques Gounon, Chairman and CEO of Groupe Eurotunnel stated:
"By investing in an infrastructure for the transport and exchange of electricity, Eurotunnel is using its expertise in
regulated environments to reinforce its long-term strategy based on recurrent and predictable returns for value creation".
Under the terms of the 25  year exemption granted to ElecLink by the national regulatory authorities, the group will  shortly hold an auction for part  of the  capacity of the new cable, which will then enable the financing of the project to be put in place without impacting the Group’s credit rating.
