Elia starts work on a new high-voltage line spanning the River Scheldt in the Port of Antwerp

Last week, preparatory work on the new high-voltage line spanning the River Scheldt in the Port of Antwerp began.

The work in question is part of phase II of the Brabo project, which Elia is implementing to upgrade the high-voltage grid in and around the Port of Antwerp and shore up Belgium's security of supply. To enable the line to span the Scheldt, Elia will have to erect two new pylons 192 m high on the banks of the river. The work will be completed by mid-2019.
