Archaeological finds along Nemo Link cable route presented

Amid great media interest, Governor of West Flanders Carl Decaluwé presented the archaeological artefacts found last year along the cable route of Nemo Link, Elia’s future interconnector with the UK.

They mainly include remnants of war from the First and Second World Wars that have been located and partly salvaged during unexploded ordnance (UXO) operations to detect dangerous explosives. The biggest find is fragments of a crashed B-17 bomber. To give the investigation every chance, the Nemo Link cable has been rerouted 14 m away from the crash site.
