Open Construction Sites Day – a unique chance to visit the Nemo Link converter station

Over a distance of 140 km and at depths up to 50 m, Elia, the Belgian high-voltage electricity transmission operator and its UK counterparty, National Grid, are working at the first electrical interconnection between Belgium and the UK: Nemo Link.

You are curious to learn more about these works and about the advantages of such an interconnection?

Come to the Nemo Link converter station in Bruges on Sunday 6th of May and discover how we convert alternating current into direct current and reverse.

The converter station is the landing point of the cables and there, the electricity is ‘prepared’ for the transportation between both countries. Learn more about the project here.

A walking tour with information panels and ‘good-to-know’ stories will take you through the stories of transformers, interconnectors and subsea cables.

Hereunder you can have a look at the tour:
