Continuance of the Eagle Pylon Line from Kassø - Tjele
Good Practice of the Year Award winner 2014
In 2007 it was decided to replace a single circuit line with a double circuit 400 kV line to be completed in 2014. This line now forms the backbone of the Danish transmission grid, connecting Germany to Norway and Sweden. After completing the first stage of the line from Tjele to Kassø, the line is now being prolonged. For the final part of the line, an optimized version of the Eagle Pylon is being used, called the Eagle 2. Find more information about the project here.
"The locals have shown not only acceptance but even approval. The Eagle Pylon has proven that by rethinking the design and the general approach to overhead lines it is possible to get positive feedback."
- Christian Jensen, Executive Project Manager, Energinet
The Eagle Power Pylon is designed as a shaft with arms that reach for the sky - it is an optimistic shape that sends a positive signal to the surroundings. The shaft and cross-arms are made of hot-dip galvanised steel.
The cross-arms are held in place by stainless steel wires.The pylon structure comprises a cylindrical shaft and rhomboid section cross-arms. This particular shape makes the cross-arms appear slender.The Eagle Pylon family consists of suspension, tension, and flying-angle pylons.
All family members present a close resemblance to each other due to an identical overall design. At a line terminus or underground transition, a substation and terminal tower are established.
