Expertise from Experience

Substations are essential for transforming energy and distributing it over long distances. Engineering and managing the design of substations is a multi-discipline challenge. The connection of either onshore or offshore assets to the grid requires a successful development and construction of the transmission system.

We are specialized in onshore transmission and grid connection management for renewable energy projects. 
Our consulting service includes the fields of grid code compliance, civil works, electrical and mechanical engineering. 

Competences

Connecting The Dots

Early Project De-Risking

Investigating the onshore transmission concept and ensuring that the grid connection works in the project development phase.

Grid Code Compliance

Clarifying the framework for the asset construction and operation. Ensuring the power transmitted to the grid is compliant with the applicable grid code.

Project Execution

Ensuring that all disciplines are coordinated and progressed throughout the project phases.

We draw on experiences from successful implementation of transmission infrastructure in five continents and in the most challenging conditions in the world.
