The Kennedytunnel dates from 1969 and is a major tunnel underneath the Scheldt in the south of Antwerp. Recently Omexom installed a completely new medium voltage installation in the tunnel.
The conversion of the plant was to replace the existing switchgear cells with new material. Given that this concerns the power for lighting and ventilation of a tunnel, it was important that the supply was ensured during the work.
Thanks to the creation of a detailed roadmap based on redundant power Omexom has brought the contract to an excellent finish.
