Elia installs bird flight diverters on high-voltage line in Bruges


16-12-2016

Elia has started installing bird anti-collision devices on the new Stevin project high-voltage line. Markers were installed on the earth cable over a 9-km stretch, thus making the thin wire hanging over the high-voltage conductors more visible and reducing the risk of collisions. The project is being run in cooperation with Natuurpunt, which is also advising Elia on other bird protection projects.
