State Secretary Philippe De Backer visits Belgium's first ’plug at sea’
State Secretary for the North Sea Philippe De Backer visited the construction site of the Modular Offshore Grid (MOG), the switchyard platform that, as of 2019, will bundle together cables from offshore wind farms and connect them to the mainland.
The foundation footing was recently installed on the seabed and construction of the immense switchyard platform is well underway. The MOG will play a key role in further developing renewable energy in the North Sea.
