WSP Lends Hand On Morocco-UK Power Link

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on

These introductory paragraphs detail WSP’s role.

Xlinks has appointed engineering consultancy WSP to provide technical advisory services for the tendering process for converter stations for its Morocco-UK power link.

WSP will support the procurement process for four HVDC converter stations in the UK and also Morocco, as well as UK grid connection works, connection to the generation assets in Morocco, and an interface between the converter stations and the HVDC cable systems in the UK and Morocco.

When I wrote my first post on this project in September 2021, which was  entitled Moroccan Solar-Plus-Wind To Be Linked To GB In ‘Ground-Breaking’ Xlinks Project, I was a bit sceptical that this project would be completed.

With the appointment of WSP, I am now very much happier that this project will be carried through to a successful conclusion.

  2. I had to look up who WSP is, then I saw the name Parsons Brinckerhoff and the penny dropped. Trouble with stepping away from the mainstream of your working career and you realise that you’re not keeping up with all the mergers and acquisitions that continue apace.
    I was very sceptical when I first read about the project but having recently read about the CEO recently I’m coming around to believing it may really happen.
