Installation of underground substation in Knokke-Heist

To meet the increasing energy demand in Knokke-Heist and to make the electricity supply future-proof, grid company Fluvius is renovating and expanding an underground switching station, 50 meters from the sea dike. Fluvius contacted Deba, the specialist in medium-voltage installations, to help realize this power expansion.

Inventive craftsmanship at all levels is required to bring this project to a successful conclusion.

The renovation of the existing substation is anything but routine. Given the fact that the medium-voltage cubicles all have to be placed in an underground cellar of the Grand Hotel residence. Fortunately, our Deba colleagues can think ‘out of the box’ in unusual situations, and call upon our years of experience (over 40 years). Providing an extra safety is very necessary in the underground cellar, because in case of a short-circuit, there is no way out for the overpressure. Switchgear Company’s Arc-Killer offers the solution in this case. The ‘arc-killer’ extinguishes possible short-circuits in the blink of an eye.

We thank Fluvius for its trust in Deba and for the photo.

As you can see, there are only smiling faces.
Our employees love their job and don’t shy away from ‘more difficult’ projects. This is precisely the challenge! Delivering a good result gives an even greater sense of satisfaction.
