Duo lands €39m Dutch grid deal
DNV GL, Grontmij to help TenneT integrate growing renewables generation
A consortium of DNV GL and Grontmij has signed a €39m framework agreement with TenneT for work to bolster the high-voltage grid in the Netherlands.
The duo will support the transmission operator as preferred supplier for connections and approved supplier for stations as it aims to integrate increasing renewables generation on the network.
The consortium will offer services in the areas of “spatial integration of connectors and stations, environmental impact, soil surveys, permits, feasibility studies, high-voltage engineering, architectural design and supervision”, said DNV GL.
"As a longstanding partner of TenneT, DNV GL delivers its expertise to support TenneT’s ambitions in integrating more renewables and securing a reliable energy supply in the future," said DNV GL director for energy in Benelux Jacob Ruiter.
The framework contracts, on which the consortium will be joined by partners Roos+Bijl and Joulz, last for three years but have options for renewal. The work will also boost the Netherlands’ connections with neighbouring countries.
