Community is at the core of everything we do. We don’t just deliver power to communities – we are a part of them.
Our vision for the future is driven by them and we’re always looking for new ways to give something back.
Keeping in touch
Engaging with the local community is very important to all of us here at Viking Link and through the following channels, we will ensure that that residents are kept informed throughout the construction phase.
Public Information Events
These events will provide information about the construction timetable and planned works along the interconnector route.
Local Community Liaison Groups (CLG)
Community Liaison Group meetings take place at regular intervals throughout the year, due to Covid restrictions the meetings are held virtually.
The meetings involve members of the project team, local landowners and members of Parish and Local Councils. Our principle contractors also attend.
The committee update on upcoming activities along with discussing timescales. We ensure that members of the community have a forum for raising any requests for information with the project team through their representatives.
Skills and learning
We are always looking for new opportunities to improve local skills and employment. Our aim is to bring science and engineering to life for young people.
We are working with the region’s schools and colleges to inspire today’s young students to become the apprentices and engineers of tomorrow. We have developed a STEM-based curriculum that has real-life situations to help students to learn and show how they benefit our society and even our world as a whole.
Additionally, we showcase the various opportunities available to develop skills through a combination of practical work and academic study.
Supply chain opportunities
We want Viking Link to be a catalyst for supply chain, skills & economic growth in Lincolnshire, and through our partnerships, we will be looking to provide opportunities for local companies across all phases of the project.
