US engineering firm Jacobs has been awarded a contract on Germany’s €10 billion SuedLink power line project.

The firm will support the laying of underground cables, which will transport wind power from northern Germany to the southern states of Bavaria and Baden-Wuerttemberg.

The transmission system operators (TSOs) responsible for planning on SuedLink – which is currently at the approval stage – are TenneT Holding and TransnetBW.

TenneT will have responsibility for the northern element of the cable and TransnetBW the sourthern element; the TSOs separately appointed Jacobs to undertake the work across the entire 700km-long project.

The scope of the work Jacobs will undertake includes programme and contract management, planning and approvals, stakeholder engagement and logistics.
