Electricity transmission operator TenneT is planning to construct a 150 kV cable link from the Ypenburg residential district in The Hague via Rijswijk to Wateringen. The new underground cable is needed to realize 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 km 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.
