Digital information session for residents on 25 January 

At 8 p.m. on Tuesday 25 January 2022, Elia will hold a digital information session on the installation of a new underground power cable between Bas-Warneton and Wevelgem. Register via the link below or by calling freephone number 0800 11 089.

New underground power cable

Elia will lay a new underground power cable (150 kV) between the Bas Warneton and Wevelgem high-voltage substations. This work is necessary in order to guarantee a reliable supply of electricity for homes and businesses. The cable will be laid under the N58, Menenstraat (N8), Komerenstraat, Dadizelestraat, Henri Dunantlaan, the N32 and Hoge Posthoornstraat. Work will comprise multiple stages, beginning in 2022 and coming to an end in early 2024.  

Digital information session on 25 January 2022

Elia has to apply for an environmental permit to be able to start work on the cable. In connection with this permit application, Elia will hold a digital information session from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday 25 January 2022. Elia employees involved in the project will give a presentation providing more information about the project's purpose, schedule, the work involved and any potential disruptions. Following the presentation, attendees will have the chance to put their questions to the project team. 

Those wanting to attend the session must register in advance via this link. If you already know the questions you wish to ask, you can note them down when registering. Once registered, you will receive an email containing the practical details and the link to access the session. The only other thing you will need is a computer or smartphone that is connected to the internet.
