East-West Interconnector digs into an ancient burial ground
he contractors laying the underground HVDC cable for EirGrid’s East-West HVDC Interconnector have uncovered an ancient burial site. The site was discovered on a farm in Rush, which is north of Dublin. It seems several bones and skulls have been recovered. The local historians believe that this area was a 9th century village of Vikings. The area has been cordoned and the archaeologists will now start work.
This new discovery may push the cable laying work by few weeks. East West Interconnector is a 500MW connection between Great Britain and Ireland. It is owned by EirGrid and expected to be operational in 2012.
