Grid plans undersea Manx cable

NATIONAL GRID and the Manx Electricity Authority have announced plans for an undersea pounds 45m high-voltage link from the Isle of Man's capital, Douglas, to Bispham, near Blackpool. A fibre-optic telecoms system will be installed beside the 105km cable, due to be operational by 2001. A BICC and Pirelli-led consortium has won contracts worth pounds 32m to install the cable and build the substations.
