Bruegel – Berchem-Sainte-Agathe

Replacing the underground cable connection between the Bruegel high-voltage substation in Dilbeek and the high-voltage substation in Berchem-Sainte-Agathe

Current cable at end of service life

Elia is replacing the underground cable connection between the Bruegel high-voltage substation in Dilbeek and the high-voltage substation in Berchem-Saint-Agathe. The work taking place within the Flemish Region will start in early November 2018 and will last approximately one year, based on the current schedule. The cable currently linking the two high-voltage substations is coming to the end of its service life. Elia therefore needs to replace it to minimise the risk of grid disruption and ensure that the power grid in and around Brussels remains reliable.

  • texteIn the interest of society

    The line between Bruegel and Berchem-Sainte-Agathe needs to be replaced for two reasons:

    • Current cable approaching end of service life
      The cable currently linking the Dilbeek and Berchem-Sainte-Agathe high-voltage substations is coming to the end of its service life.
    • Grid reliability
      By replacing the cable, we are ensuring that the electricity grid in and around Brussels is reliable and is always supplied with power.
  • texteThe route
    The Bruegel – Berchem-Sainte-Agathe cable connection runs from Bruegel high-voltage substation in Dilbeek to the high-voltage substation in Berchem-Sainte-Agathe (Brussels-Capital Region).  
  • environnementEnvironment

    Elia always bears the local area in mind when it carries out work, and consequently takes a range of measures intended to minimise disruption and reduce the impact on the surrounding area.

    • Work will only be carried out during the day, between 7.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m.
    •  Elia guarantees that local residents will always be able to access their homes and businesses on foot.
    • Dynamic traffic lights are being used to ensure that Brusselstraat remains open to traffic in both directions.
    • Footpaths and cycle paths will remain accessible at all times. 
    •  If local residents are set to experience a temporary increase in disruption for a specific reason, Elia or its subcontractor(s) will always send out individual letters to those affected to notify them.

  • Schedule
      • November – December 2018: Work between the Bruegel high-voltage substation in Brusselstraat and the intersection with Lindenberg and Hoogveld.
      •  2019: Work from intersection with Lindenberg and Hoogveld to the Berchem-Sainte-Agathe high-voltage substation.
