Belgium-Belgian TSO Elia inaugurates high-voltage line for offshore wind farm expansion

Belgian PM Charles Michel and Federal Minister of Energy Marie Christine Marghem officially inaugurated the line on 21st November. The 47 kilometre, 380 kV Stevin line, between Zeebrugge and Zomergem, is pioneering in that it will transport energy generated by new offshore wind farms to the mainland, encourage green energy projects in the region, support the growth of the Zeebrugge port area and facilitate exchange of energy with the UK via the subsea Nemo cable. It will be able to transport up to 3,000 MW, a capacity equal to that of three major nuclear power plants. The Stevin project between Zomergem and Zeebrugge comprises a double 380- kV connection that runs both above (37 km) and below (10 km) ground. In addition to the overhead lines and cables, three new high-voltage substations have been built: the Stevin substation in Zeebrugge, Gezelle in Bruges (close to Herde...
