We present a 1.8-approximation algorithm for the following NP-hard problem: Given a connected graph G = (V, E) and an edge set E on V disjoint to E, find a minimum-size subset of edges F ⊆ E such that (V, E ∪ F) is 2-edge-connected. Our result improves and significantly simplifies the approximation algorithm with ratio 1.875 + ε of Nagamochi.
