Opinion differences are to be expected when a new and stronger high-voltage line is to be installed somewhere in the country as this means that a municipality will have to find six hectares of land where transformers can be set up.

Energy provider Creos is currently looking for a location to redistribute 380,000 volts coming from Germany. First it was supposed to be Steinsel, then Lorentzweiler where land for the undertaking was selected.

After a third plan was made, this time envisioning transformers on the territory of Altlinster, the affected mayors began taking a stand. A Natura 2000 zone is located between the towns of Imbringen, Altlinster, and Fischbach, which leads to further tensions.

The next stage of the project will be the publication of Creos' environmental impact study, which local residents can examine. People's comments will then be taken into consideration, based on which the Ministry of the Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development will come to its final conclusion.

Creos currently plans on launching the project by 2026 or 2027.
