Last year NKT signed a frame agreement with the Swedish utility company, Ellevio. The turnkey contract won by NKT is the first under this agreement and will upgrade Ellevio’s power grid in the Stadshagen area of Stockholm.

NKT has just been awarded another turnkey contract by Swedish electricity network company Ellevio to upgrade the electric grid in the district of Stadshagen in the Stockholm area. According to the turnkey contract, NKT will deliver the design and installation, including joints and terminations, and cables for three 110 kV AC onshore connections in a tunnel and a shaft. NKT has produced the cables for the project at its factory in Falun, Sweden.

“This is a strategically important project to NKT Service & Installation as it demonstrates our experience and ability to provide turnkey solutions, from the production of the cables to the installation process. We can deliver the design, cables, installation engineering, accessories and testing required for this project, and the fact that we know our products’ abilities and limitations enables us to carry out the installation in an efficient and timely manner,” says Johan Löjdquist, Head of Onshore Sales, Service & Installation in Sweden.

The project is the first one under the four-year frame agreement that NKT signed with Ellevio late last year to reinforce and expand the power grid in central Sweden. The project in Stadshagen will reinforce the grid by replacing three legacy cable connections.

“It is a pleasure for us to be able to continue our long-standing relationship with Ellevio to secure and upgrade their power cable network in central Sweden. This is yet another project in the Stockholm area that we are carrying out for Ellevio, and NKT is pleased to use our expertise and track record in such onshore grid upgrading projects,” says Johan.

The Stadshagen project will commence now and is scheduled to be ready by June 2024.

Ellevio is one of Sweden’s largest electricity network companies, supplying electricity to close to one million households and businesses in central Sweden, including the Stockholm area.
