New underground cable in Rijswijk

The new underground cable is needed to realise a further expansion of the high-voltage grid in the region, and is part of the grid expansion TenneT is planning to complete in and around The Hague.

The new cable link will help secure the future supply of electricity to the region. It will cover a distance of approximately 5 kilometres and will be constructed between the high-voltage substations at Ypenburg and Wateringen, which are currently under construction. The high-voltage connection is scheduled to be taken into operation in 2010.
