Feasibility studies – Within energy consulting, a feasibility study involves a screening of grid alternatives based on technical feasibility and financial assessments. It includes the preparation of professional reports as a basis for government processing.
Feasibility studies often include assessments of upgrading or new construction of power line systems, cable systems, transformer stations or a combination of these.
For upgrading / new construction of a power line, a cable system or location of a new transformer station, buildability is considered. This depends on climate loads, terrain and environment, transport options, crossings and approaches to other infrastructure, compliance with regulatory requirements, the possibility of disconnections, safety during construction, etc. We make technical and financial assessments for the choice of mast types and lines and space requirements based on regulatory requirements and extensive experience from a large number of previous projects. Risk assessment is performed in accordance with FEF 2006 §2-2.
A feasibility study for upgrading transformer stations involves an assessment of the condition of the existing station. We then look at both concrete, steel and appliances, at the same time as we make an assessment of possible measures for rehabilitation / expansion. We are also considering current solutions mtp. space requirements, and looks, among other things, at compliance with regulatory distances according to current requirements. We make an overall assessment of optimal station design adapted to location and costs.
