We continue to consume ever greater amounts of electricity. This means new cable networks and connections are needed to carry and distribute the electricity. Increasingly, this is done via high-voltage underground cables.
The installation of a high-voltage network demands special know-how and expertise, not least because of the weight and the length of the cables. Likewise, conditions in which cables are laid can vary enormously. Different situations apply for cables laid above the ground, under the ground or on the sea bed.
VolkerInfra has made a name for itself by installing high-voltage underground cable connections, from 50 to 400 kV. This is the case, for example, for water crossings, via tunnels and cable landfalls and outfalls. In many such projects, use has to be made of dredging, drilling and laying techniques, specifically developed for these purposes.
No challenge is too big
We do not shy away from challenges in our projects. Much of our strength is derived from grouping together available know-how and experience within our organisation. In addition, we have the capacity to translate complexity and project size into a holistic approach, so that a diversity of cables can be laid in the ground at the same time.
