Elia pulls 380-kV high-voltage cables under the Boudewijnkanaal


25-04-2017

Elia is currently busy laying 380-kV high-voltage cables in a tunnel under the Boudewijnkanaal in Zeebrugge. The underground 380-kV cable, a first for Belgium, stretches 10 kilometres and partly runs through a tunnel under the Boudewijnkanaal.

It is part of the Stevin project, which aims to bring wind power generated by offshore wind farms to the mainland, strengthen the region's supply and make it possible to exchange energy with the UK via the subsea Nemo cable.
