ALE completes Green Cable project in Norway

ALE has successfully completed the multi-service scope for a major joint Norwegian/German renewable energy project.

ALE were contracted to engineer, deliver and install seven transformers, weighing approximately 225t each, for the Nordlink Project in Tonstad, Norway.

ALE commenced operations in June with the receiving of the transformers at the Port of Kvinesdal and transported them through Agder. ALE used the AL100 girder frame and 26 axle lines of conventional trailers along a very technically challenging 70km route through the Norwegian mountains.

Paul Karlsen, Regional Manager – Scandinavia for ALE, stated: “The complex route required comprehensive planning and engineering. The project showcased not only our utilisation of locally-based equipment, but also our capabilities to provide flexible and multi-services in challenging conditions. We are proud to have successfully completed this project and want to thank everyone involved for their hard work throughout.”

It took approximately five months to complete.

The NordLink project is the first girder frame project to be executed by ALE in Norway utilising its new locally based equipment and operations team. Referred to as the ‘Green Cable’ project, it sees the exchange of renewable energies between the Norwegian and German power grids. The project will allow exchange of renewable energies, especially hydroelectric power and wind power, between both countries. At 623km long, this will be one of the longest high voltage direct current (HVDC) connection in Europe.
