Team Elnos Group today began its works on its first project in Norway. It is a capital project NORDLINK Green-link, i.e. Project construction of the first interconnection which will allow a direct connection between the Norwegian and German energy market.

The voltage level of the substation is +/- 515 kV, and its transmission capacity is 1,400 MW.
