IAV with the lowest bid in Suðurnesja Line 2; Tracks, earthworks and foundations.
Suðurnesja Line 2 is a part of the project southwestern Lines Landsnet which they began preparing in 2005 with the aim of building electrical distribution systems for the future of the Southwest, from Hellisheiði to the Reykjanes peninsula.
Environmental assessment for the project was approved with conditions in 2009 and early 2011 the preparations began for the project itself. It was decided to begin to strengthen the electrical transmission system in the Southwest where the need is greatest, both in terms of capacity and security of supply, by constructing 220 kV transmission lines along existing Suðurnesja line 1. Later is expected to demolish Suðurnesja line 1 and build 220 kV line in its place.
Suðurnesja Line 2 will mostly follow current Suðurnesja line 1 from the substation in Hamranes Hafnarfjordur to the substation at Rauðamel north of Svartsengi, Grindavik, except eastern part of the region where it is expected to be available in new line belt considerably further away from existing settlements in Hafnarfjordur.
The environments disruption is minimized and addressed the recommendation of local attractions and major relevant institutions that the new line will be built in the existing structures line, where there are Suðurnesja Line 1 and Reykjanesbraut.
