Landsnet and IAV signed a contract
Landsnet has signed a contract with the IAV on the preparatory work for the construction Suðurnesja Line, 220-kilovolt transmission line from Hraunhella in Hafnarfjordur to Rauðamelur
Seven companies were invited for the project and IAV had the lowest offer for a 320 MISK. The budget was nearly 390 MISK.
The work involves earthworks and foundation construction for the line, just over 32 kilometers and will have the total of 100 masts.
"The new line will largely follow current Suðurnesja line 1 from Hafnarfjordur to Rauðamelur except eastern part of the region where it is expected to be available in the new line belts considerably further away from existing settlements in Hafnarfjordur. Land disturbances are minimized and it has become the recommendation of local attractions and major relevant institutions to build new lines in existing structures belt, where there are Suðurnesja Line 1 and Reykjanesbraut. "
Preparation on the work will start as soon as conditions permit and the work will be completed before September 2016.
