Transmission & Distribution
Norconsult offers engineering services for substations, under-ground and subsea cables, transmission and distribution lines in all project phases and at all voltages.
We have extensive experience in this field both from Norway and internationally, with many notable projects in particular in South East Asia.
Services offered include inter alia:
- Grid studies
- Electrification and distribution masterplans
- Transmission masterplans
- Feasibility studies
- Tender design and tender documents
- Design review and construction supervision
- Environmental and social impact assessment
- Due diligence investigation
For design and dimensioning of transmission lines, we use the modeling and calculation tool PLS-CADD. This is an advanced software which enables us to design all types of masts in different types of construction materials adopted to your particular project (steel, wood, aluminum or composites).
Norconsult often plans and designs power lines based on LIDAR data. This gives flexibility when optimizing the design and often leads to lower capex than traditional surveying methods. We do however design lines based on land survey data as well.
