Destroyed Pepinster substation will be operational again by the end of August 
The repair work following the mid-July floods is on schedule. Pepinster's worst-hit high-voltage substation will be back in service by the end of August. The On (Rochefort) substation is already fully operational again. Hard work has been done on-site to maintain the supply of electricity in the region. The costs of repair work will likely be largely reimbursed by insurance and the regulatory framework.

Elia Group publishes half-year results
 
Elia Group made many investments in the first half of the year: €164.9 million in Belgium and €221.6 million in Germany. The adjusted net profit dropped 1.6% to €150.5 million due to the increase in maintenance and personnel costs in Germany. These are offset by the strong performance of Nemo Link (Belgium-UK interconnector) and solid operations in Belgium. The financial outlook for adjusted return on equity is on the higher side of the target of 5.5% to 6.5%.

Helicopter used to dismantle electricity pylon

In Engis, near Huy in the province of Liège, a high-voltage pylon has been dismantled using a helicopter. The pylon was 70 years old and had to be dismantled. The nearly 60-metre-tall colossus stood on the edge of a quarry and due to its location could not be removed using a conventional crane. The mast was expertly dismantled and removed by helicopter. The entire operation went smoothly and faster than planned.
