Elia upgrades north-south axis of Belgian high-voltage grid between Kruibeke and Dilbeek

Elia, the Belgian high-voltage grid operator, is upgrading the north-south axis of the Belgian electricity grid
between the Mercator and Bruegel high-voltage stations in Kruibeke and Dilbeek, respectively.

The existing overhead line will be equipped with a new type of conductor that can transport more power. This will allow Elia to better distribute and transmit increased electricity flows throughout the country in the future. This is necessary to continue ensuring security of supply for the country. On Tuesday, 2 February 2021, Elia is organising a digital information session where the project will be presented.
