Cable Laying Starts at Elia’s MOG

Cable laying operations have begun on the Modular Offshore Grid (MOG) in Belgium, according to Elia’s latest report.


The construction of the switchyard platform is now in its final phase, with commissioning scheduled for the end of September.

The first cable to connect the MOG plug to the grid made landfall in early May, with the second cable following the month later.

According to Elia, further cabling installation and termination works and connection to the platform will continue until the end of August.

The MOG will bundle the electricity generated by Rentel, Seastar and Mermaid (now SeaMade), and Northwester 2  offshore wind farms and transmit it to the mainland via joint subsea cables.

The company also reported that the construction of the HVDC converter station of the Combined Grid Solution (CGS) in Germany is in the last phase. In June, NKT commissioned the 170kV high-voltage cable system at the Kriegers Flak CGS, which connects Denmark and Germany.
