Agreement reached between Maldegem and Elia on Stevin high-voltage project


Following in the footsteps of Bruges, the town of Maldegem has fully agreed with Elia’s plans to upgrade the power grid on its territory. The two parties have concluded a settlement agreement that will be submitted to the municipal council next week.

The expected approval will put an end to all the legal proceedings that local authorities had lodged against the Stevin project. This paves the way for the definitive implementation of the new high-voltage line in the provinces of West Flanders and East Flanders, which is critical to Belgium’s future electricity supply.
