BYSTRUP's work encompasses the complete overhead line design including foundation and routing.
With more than 15 years’ experience in overhead line design and engineering, BYSTRUP is uniquely qualified to perform complete engineering and design services for transmission line towers and foundations.
BYSTRUP believes that utilities, consumers, and regulators all recognize that access to affordable, reliable, and renewable energy is essential for the future health of our planet, economy, and security in general.
Without it, water cannot be pumped to support growing populations, product cannot be economically manufactured to maintain viable economies, and poverty cannot be mitigated in underdeveloped countries facing their own challenges.
Considering that the world consumes over 20 Trillion kWh of electricity every year and that more than 1.4 Trillion kWh are lost in the inefficient transmission of that energy BYSTRUP believes the time has come to consider the importance of investment, not just in more efficient clean generation, but also in improved transmission technologies.

Henrik Skouboe, Director Global Projects
Henrik heads the company’s department for infrastructure with projects such as power line planning, design, procurement and control.
The years of solid experience designing, developing and realizing innovative pylons and a passion for sustainable solutions place the company among the international frontrunners in power grid development.
Henrik has led numerous power pylon projects for the past ten years. Among many he has been in charge of the development of the Eagle Pylon.
Since 2000 he has been involved in several projects together with Energinet (Design Pylon, Eagle Pylon, Stealth Pylon, Composite Pylon, Substations etc.) and has comprehensive expertise in effficient and affordable power pylon design.
In the recent years Henrik has been building a substantial network with operators all over the world requesting new pylon design. He is therefore a valuable asset - knowing what is going on - for any operator in the development of new solutions.
Finally, he is an energetic speaker at international energy conferences on the topic of developing and designing power grids.
As founder of the company, Erik has overseen the studio’s success over the past 20 years, including more than 50 prizes in Danish and International competitions.
Through his experience, Erik has accumulated deep technical knowledge and skill. When combined with his innovative thinking, this always produces new solutions and opportunities.
He has for the past 15 years been a key figure in the design and development of new optimized power pylons, many of which have now been realized. His work on the T-Pylon for National Grid has extended throughout the project, from the initial competition proposal to the detail design of the built pylons.
He has been a longstanding figure in the established collaboration with Energinet.dk, working in the development of the Design Pylon, Eagle Pylon and most recently, the Composite Pylon.
Erik aims to challenge himself and his colleagues through the company’s everyday work, creating an environment with a constant search for new ways of thinking, new interpretations and ways of shaping our surroundings.
