Elia secures an environmental permit for Horta-Avelgem

Last week, Elia secured an environmental permit from the Flemish Government for the Horta-Avelgem project. The permit is for the upgrade of the existing 380 kV high-voltage line between the Horta high-voltage substation in Zomergem and the substation in Avelgem.

What does the work involve?

During the first stage of the project, Elia will strengthen the existing pylons and their foundations and make adjustments to the Avelgem high-voltage substation. Elia will notify local residents as soon as the exact timeframe for the work is known.

You can keep up with the latest progress on the project by signing up to Elia’s dedicated digital newsletter. If you want to receive the newsletter, send an email to omwonenden@elia.be with the message "sign up for Horta-Avelgem newsletter”. Your details will then be added to the mailing list.
