Siemens Energy and Norwegian distribution system operator Lyse Elnett have signed a framework agreement to strengthen the Norwegian power grid. Under this agreement, Siemens Energy will provide services and transmission products for various substations in the Sør-Rogaland region in Southern Norway.
Provided that the total agreement’s scope of supply for the maximum runtime of eight years are called up, the agreement has a total volume of estimated € 200 million. The agreement covers design and construction of new substations as well as modifications and upgrades of existing substations, including the supply of transmission products and services. By constructing new substations and modernising existing ones, Lyse Elnett not only rises to the challenges of increasing energy demand and the volatile feed-in of renewables: the framework agreement also stipulates that Lyse Elnett can, over time, fulfill its objective of more environmentally friendly power transmission by eliminating fluorinated gases (F-gases) in their substations.
