Linxon has won an order of ca. $18 million from the Swedish utility Svenska kraftnät to supply a new 400 kV substation in Hall, outside the town of Södertälje, 25 kilometres south of Stockholm.
This project consists of the installation of one new 400 kV air-insulated (AIS) substation to replace an existing substation which, having reached the end of its lifespan, will then be demolished. The scope of works includes design, supply, construction and commissioning. Site works are planned to start in the spring of 2021 and the project is estimated to be completed in the autumn of 2023.
“We are honoured to have received our fourth large order to enhance the power grid in the Swedish capital”, said Frédéric Trefois, CEO of Linxon. “This again demonstrates the strength of collaboration between Linxon and our customers as well as our joint intention to deliver on our commitments to end clients and the wider community.”
As part of its overall strategy, Svenska kraftnät has launched a modernisation program to expand and upgrade existing facilities to ensure it can meet the needs of Sweden’s growing urban population.
Linxon commenced operations on September 1, 2018, undertaking turnkey electrical alternating current substation projects related to renewable and conventional power generation, power transmission and transportation solutions. Substations enable efficient and reliable transmission and distribution of electricity. Within the substation, switchgear controls and protects the network from power outages and facilitates reliable electricity supply.
