Multiconsult wins work package covering substations in central Norway under framework contract with Statnett

The work package that Multiconsult has won comes under Statnett's framework contract for external substation design. This work package is the first of several major competitions announced under this framework contract.

5. January 2017

The project comprises interdisciplinary substation design. The main tasks will be designing the high-voltage systems, buildings and other structures, including associated ground works, landscape architecture, service roads, electrical systems and building services.

Multiconsult held a kickoff meeting with Statnett on 1 December. The work package is made up of sub-projects for several substations sharing the same client team. Statnett wants to work with a design team that will collaborate with its own team to produce much of the technical documentation needed for the project’s decision points.

We are very proud to have been selected within the framework contract, as it reinforces Multiconsult’s position as the leading supplier of design services to the energy sector. The fact that Multiconsult remains a key player in the planning of important infrastructure investments in Norway is both pleasing and a strong vote of confidence,” says Head of Marketing Tom Ødegaard.

Using local staff in Trondheim

Multiconsult will fulfil the contract using local staff at its Central Norway office in Trondheim supported by the Greater Oslo Area. Most of Statnett’s client team is also based in Trondheim.

– Multiconsult’s team will work on the projects over the coming 2-3 years. Additional substations may also be incorporated into the project at some stage during that period, says Brynjar Sandvik, Multiconsult’s project manager.

The work will involve developing the substations in close cooperation with Statnett, including design, technical specifications for subcontracts and site supervision.

Substations currently covered by the work package:

Isfjorden substation

Brandhol substation

Vågåmo substation

Eidum substation

Kolsvik substation
