The assignment is to install 31 kilometers of 220 kV cables from Idomslund to Volder Mark in the west part of Jutland, where a new substation is being built. It is from here that the power generated by the wind farm will be transferred to the grid.
“Infrastructure tasks are a strategically important area for NCC, and the expansion and upgrading of the electricity grid is one of the complex specialties that NCC has the expertise to perform. From planning to delivery. We look forward to working with Energinet also in this project,” says Flemming Carlsen, Head of NCC Infrastructure in Denmark.

The guided directional drilling will run from summer 2023 to summer 2024, while all the excavation and cabling work will take place between spring 2024 and autumn 2024.
