Grid Link Project Presents Significant Opportunity

Chambers Ireland has today welcomed the publication of the Grid Link Stage 1 Report which identifies a number of feasible 1 kilometre wide route corridors which can accommodate the new transmission line.

Speaking this afternoon, Seán Murphy, Chambers Ireland Deputy Chief Executive, said “EirGrid’s Grid Link project to reinforce the grid in the south and east of the country will ensure that this area is well positioned to deal with increased energy demand from business and consumers in the future.”

“A top quality energy delivery infrastructure is a vital prerequisite to attract new industries and jobs that may be attracted to locate in the region. Grid Link is a significant opportunity that will enhance competitiveness across the energy market by enabling the transfer of the electricity more easily across the Single Electricity Market. This is of vital interest to business in Ireland. Progress on a project of this scale is to be welcomed. We will be encouraging all of our affiliated Chambers and the wider communities in their region to support its timely delivery,” he concluded.

Wexford Chamber will be holding an EirGrid Grid Link breakfast seminar on Wednesday 23rd October in The Farmers Kitchen Drinagh. Further details will follow soon.
