Nemo Link has built the converter station on the former Richborough Power Station site, which now forms part of the Richborough Energy Park. In March 2012 the three cooling towers and chimney were demolished.


The converter station has been built on a green field site next to the Electrabel’s power plant in the Herdersbrug industry zone in Bruges.

The connection point between the converter station and the existing Belgian transmission system is located at the Gezelle substation. This substation is a part of the Stevin project and was newly constructed  in 2017.
