Tractebel supports TenneT in the implementation of 145 km HV line in Germany
By: Tractebel Engineering GmbH
Tractebel's technical concept and experience in the management of major projects were competitive enough to win the contract. The team, with Tractebel Engineering GmbH as the lead company, will be supporting this project over the next six years as an EPCM project together with external partners such as the ERM Group or EQOS Energie Deutschland GmbH.
Around 30 Tractebel experts from different Tractebel corporate units such as Lahmeyer Deutschland, Tractebel DOC and Tractebel Romania will be providing their combined know-how. One important task will be coordinating the cooperation between the internal and external partners across the various project stages.
This is one of the first EPCM projects for TenneT. EPCM, or Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management, stands for a wider form of project implementation. Within the framework of the EPCM agreement, Tractebel is responsible for the complete project management for the construction of essential parts of the overhead line, including the management and coordination of the planning, design and construction.
Dr. Thomas Brandstätt, Chairman of the Management Board at Tractebel Engineering GmbH, is convinced: "The energy transition in Germany will only be successful if the increase in offshore wind energy and solar energy is integrated with the expansion of the grid. The TenneT A250 grid expansion project is therefore a critical factor in Germany's drive to achieve its climate goals."
COVID-19 also sets special challenges for this project right from the onset. Work with the client and the project team on the initial stage kicked off with a workshop which, as is standard in corona times, was held digitally.
