Seven up for ALE and Nordlink

ALE has transported and installed seven transformers, weighing approximately 225 tonnes each, for the Nordlink project in Tonstad, Norway.

ALE commenced operations in June last year, receiving the first two transformers at the port of Kvinesdal in Norway. The units were transported along a 70 km route through the Norwegian mountains using an AL100 girder frame and 26 axle lines of conventional trailers, as HLPFI reported here

The project took approximately five months to complete and, according to Paul Karlsen, regional manager - Scandinavia for ALE, required comprehensive planning and engineering to transport the transformers along the complex route. 

The Nordlink project, also referred to as the Green Cable project, will develop a 623 km-long high voltage direct current (HVDC) connection between Norway and Germany.

According to ALE, it will allow the exchange of renewable energy, especially hydroelectric power and wind power, between both countries.
