ALE completes five-month multi-service project in Norway

ALE was contracted to engineer, deliver and install seven transformers, weighing approximately 225 tonnes each, for the NordLink Project in Tonstad, Norway.

ALE received the transformers at the Port of Kvinesdal and transported them to 70 km to Agder. It described the mountainous route as being ‘technically challenging’. ALE used its AL100 girder frame and 26 axle lines of conventional trailers to transport the transformers.

Paul Karlsen, ALE’s regional manager for Scandinavia, stated, “The complex route required comprehensive planning and engineering. The project showcased not only our utilisation of locally-based equipment but also our capabilities to provide flexible and multi-services in challenging conditions. We are proud to have successfully completed this project and want to thank everyone involved for their hard work throughout.”

The project took approximately five months to complete.

The NordLink project is the first girder frame project to be executed by ALE in Norway utilising its new locally based equipment and operations team. The NordLink project will enable the exchange of renewable energies between the Norwegian and German power grids via a long distance high voltage direct current (HVDC) connection.
