The construction of IFA2 is a key part of the development of national infrastructure for the UK and France. The two partners, National Grid and RTE, together with our contractors, have assessed and continue to assess the impact of COVID-19 on the construction works in both countries. In line with current government guidelines in the United Kingdom and France, essential work on the IFA2 interconnector project continues. Some of the activities are works that need to take place today, to ensure the running of the network tomorrow.
The welfare and safety of our employees, contractors and the local community remains our priority. All of the people who need to continue working on site and in the community, are doing so under stringent health and safety measures to protect not just themselves but also the communities in which we operate.
We are very grateful to our people who are continuing to go out to work every day to continue the construction of the energy networks of tomorrow at such a critical time.
