We have completed the first stage of the reconstruction project of the 400 kV transmission line V-413 in the Czech Republic. This is our first project in the “land of beer and hockey” and we are very proud of it.
Being a part of an enterprise, whose implementation will ultimately provide a safer power supply to residential and commercial buildings in the wider area of Prague is an exceptional opportunity for our company.
As part of the first phase of the reconstruction of the 400 kV transmission line V-413, our teams disassembly the existing ones and erected 31 new towers on a 10.5-kilometer-long route.
“Executing daily tasks was a challenge because this transmission line passes through urban parts of the city, over the Vltava River and several roads. The revitalization that we carried out included the demolition of towers and foundations, then the construction of new foundations, the disassembly, and assembly of new tower structures, and the electrical installation of conductors and OPGW. By carrying out the work in the right way, our teams demonstrated their professional knowledge and expediency, and that they are true masters of their craft”, said Nedeljko Vujčić, project manager of Elnos Group.
This project is also special because, for the first time, outside the region, we are delivering complete materials and equipment for the construction of transmission lines within very short defined deadlines.
He added that the teams will return to the field next spring because the reconstruction of this transmission line will take place in stages until 2025. This transmission line is an important link in the European transmission network.
We remind you that the work entrusted to Elnos Group within this project includes the disassembly of the entire transmission line, then the reconstruction and construction of a new transmission line on the same route with a total length of 37.69 kilometers.
The Czech Republic is a country of great project opportunities, where our company can contribute to the strengthening and modernization of the electric power network.
The investor of the project is the Czech electricity transmission system operator ČEPS.
