News | April 24, 2020

Elnos teams are part one of the most important projects in the field of electricity in Sweden and Denmark. The project concerns a venture which implies development and maintenance of an international energy link between the two countries which crosses the Öresun Canal.

This major endeavor, realization of which was not postponed even by pandemic of Covid 19,  implies replacement of a 400 kV submarine high voltage cable on the one hand and reconstruction of power facilities on the other, at both countries grounds. Our teams were entrusted with the task of reconstructing two sections of the 400 kV transmission line, the FL 25 and FL 23, near the Swedish port of Helsingborg.
With maximum compliance with all recommended safety measures at the time of the pandemic, as well as adhering to strictly defined deadlines, our teams have so far successfully reconstructed all four kilometers of the FL 25 transmission line section.
More specifically, we dismantled the old TL towers and conductors on the route to the SS Kristinelund, and afterwards lifted new towers, installed a new conductor and protective rope, and installed the OPGW.
We are currently preparing switching off the FL 23 transmission line, where we will perform the same work as at the previous section.Our work on the project started in March and should be completed on 1st June. The project investor is Svenska kraftnät, and the project currently employs 27 workers.

Öresund energy link
The Öresund Strait is one of the busiest waterways in the world, and for decades the cable interconnection which crossed over it provided a high level of security of electricity supply for Sweden and Denmark.The marine cable interconnection consists of two cables, one installed in 1973. and the other from 1985. Due to deterioration one older cable is being replaced as part of this year’s venture.
