Peikko Norge has received a substantial order for rock foundation technology in Central Norway and Pöyry is to deliver a power line engineering assignment in Sweden.

Peikko Group’s Norwegian subsidiary will deliver all steel components for the 80 foundations of the wind park to Storheia Wind Park in the Sør-Trøndelag area.

Storheia Wind Park is a part of Fosen Vind, Europe’s largest land-based wind power project, consisting of six wind farms with a combined capacity of 1 000 MW. Peikko earlier delivered 71 rock foundations to Roan wind park as part of the project.

Deliveries are scheduled to take place between March and October 2018. The wind park is estimated to be operational during 2019.

Meanwhile, Pöyry has been awarded a 400kV power line engineering assignment for Svenska kraftnät in Southern Sweden.

Pöyry’s tasks include detailed planning and engineering of the approximately 90 km-long steel tower line. This will further strengthen the grid and eliminate potential overload problem in the area, and secure the existing interconnection to the Baltics.

The assignment also includes work on several crossing power lines, as well as supporting Svenska kraftnät during the construction period. The project will start in September, with completion slated for the end of 2023.
