Zelzate - Kallo
Why this project?
Fluxys Belgium plans to build a second high-pressure pipeline between Zelzate and Kallo in order to have sufficient grid capacity for rising gas demand by industry in the Port of Antwerp. Installation of the pipeline is planned to begin in spring 2024 at the earliest (after the relevant permits are obtained).
Landowners and operators have their own point of contact at Fluxys, from the preliminary study of a project to the restoration of a site following the construction of a pipeline. This allows them to consult with someone familiar with their concerns and the features of their land from the outset.
