Bravida wins installation contract in the Viking Link project
Bravida Danmark has signed an agreement with Energinet for the installation of electricity, heating and plumbing, HVAC, cooling and automation at a converter station in the Viking Link project – a 765 kilometre long electricity interconnector between Denmark and the United Kingdom. The order value is approximately 61 MDKK.
The electricity interconnector between Jutland in Denmark and the United Kingdom will make it possible to transfer electricity between the countries.The link will provide a more efficient use of renewable energy, access to sustainable electricity generation and improved security of electricity supplies. In the project, Bravida will be responsible for a number of technical installations at the converter station which will be built in Revsing, Denmark.
“We are very proud to be a part of this very special infrastructure project. In the the long run, the Viking Link will provide better delivery security and ensure a more efficient use of renewable energy”, says Jørn Tønnes, regional manager for Bravida Danmark Region South.
Bravida has experience of similar assignments with advanced technology in the Skagerrak 4 project, with installations in Norway and Denmark.
Arne Hartwigsen, project manager Civil Works in Revsing, Energinet, comments:
“It is of course a big milestone to get started with the construction of the converter station, and it is something we have been looking forward to for a long time. It will be exciting to finally get started”, says Arne Hartwigsen.
The project is expected to be completed in May 2022.
