Major German-Danish Power Line Set for Finishing

July 2022

Stuttgart company EQOS Energie has been charged with building the final fifteen kilometers of a 140-kilometer-long, 380 kV overhead electricity connection of the two northern European neighbors. The overhead power lines will allow for the international transport of electricity generated by wind turbines on the North Sea coast.

The final stretch of the connection will run from the Danish border to the German town of Klixbüll. Work on this eight-figure EU Project of Common Interest (OCI) will begin this summer and is planned to be completed by the end of 2023. The timetable is ambitious.

“The project is a challenge among other things because of the tight scheduling,” said Mario Kraatz, a director within the overhead power line division of EQOS in a press release. Our goal is to finish most of the foundation work by the end of this year. At the same time, we’ll be pre-mounting and solidifying the towers so that work on the cable lines can begin on time.
