High voltage engineering specialist, EDS HV Group has completed testing, jointing and terminations for ELIA’s modular offshore grid which is a first-of-its-kind offshore grid connection project in the Belgian waters of the North Sea. EDS completes testing, jointing and termination works for ELIA’s modular offshore grid marking a hugely important step for the renewables industry in Belgium.The team worked to establish a connection between the MOG’s offshore submarine cables and the onshore cables at ELIA’s Stevin 380kV onshore substation in Zeebrugge.

Sub-contracted by the cables manufacturer, Hellenic Cables S.A., EDS performed the works on behalf of EPC contractor, DEME Group, and completed testing to establish a connection between the MOG’s offshore submarine cables and the onshore cables at the ELIA operated Stevin 380kV substation in Zeebrugge, helping to contribute to Belgium’s target of 4 GW to be installed by 2028.

By acting as a central hub, the MOG reduces the number of exports required to connect multiple new wind farms to the Belgian onshore grid to just three, providing not only cost benefits but also a greater security of supply: if one of these important cables fails or is faulty, the wind farms will still feed its renewable, clean energy into Belgium’s grid. EDS’s experience, professionalism and expertise ensured that what could have been a complex process ended up being a smooth-running and efficient project for the client.

Mr Ioannis Stergiou, senior project manager at Hellenic Cables, said that “I would like to thank EDS and its team for their commitment, hard work and determination. For both the clients, and Hellenic Cables, this result is of high importance as the MOG project plays a vital role for Belgium’s energy plan.”
