Today Belgium’s high-voltage transmission system operator Elia has released an interesting video in the context of the successful completion of the Modular Offshore Grid (MOG).
The MOG is a true milestone in the development of North Sea wind power off the Belgian coast. It is a switching platform only, not a transformer platform, making it unique in Europe. It is connected by 130 km of 220-kV cables to Elia’s high-voltage substation in Zeebrugge (Stevin substation), from where the power is transmitted to consumers via the transmission and distribution system.
Elia employs more than 1,300 professionals in Belgium who are not only committed to dealing with future challenges but who also handle the day-to-day operation of a system considered to be one of the most reliable in Europe.
