Reduction of Belgian maximum import to 3250 MW


25-08-2015

Currently, infrastructure works are being executed on important assets in the Belgian transmission grid for the purpose of reinforcing the network for the winter period to come. In combination with high wind infeeds in the North of Europe and additional unplanned unavailabilities of transmission and generation infrastructure in the Central-Western Europe region, Elia had to limit the maximum import value for Belgium from 4500 MW to 3250 MW.

Elia will closely follow up the situation and will re-assess on daily basis the maximum import levels that can be given without jeopardizing system security. This situation is however likely to continue for the next days but will gradually normalize before the start of winter. For the most recent information please consult the Elia website in combination with the daily publication of Flow-Based data.
