A project that starts with dismantling the conductors
In early May, Elia began installing 48 wooden frames along the existing overhead line. Work will commence with the conductors' removal along a roughly 2 km section of the line, comprising 12 to 18 pylons. The removal should take one week, starting with Ciply.
More specifically, the removal work will entail taking the conductors attached to small steel cables and then using a puller-tensioner to wind them onto reels at the end of a section. Next, the steel cords will be replaced by nylon cords that will ultimately be removed by hand.
A brochure was handed out last week. The brochure summarizes the most important information on the organization of the works and its planning. Click here to view the brochure.
