Peab builds new transformer station in Lødingen

Peab has been commissioned to build a new transformer station in Kanstadbotn in Lødingen Municipality. The customer is Statnett and the contract is worth NOK 127 million.

The new transformer station will consist of an administration building with a gas insulated substation (GIS) hall, reactor shaft and foundation for a capacitor battery. The administration building will be two floors with a total area of 1,100 m2. The GIS hall will be 500 m2 and built on two levels. A 75 m2 floor space foundation will be built for the capacitor battery, while the reactor shaft will be 150 m2 and be ten m2 high.

The new transformer station will be built next to the existing station in Kanstadbotn. To prepare for the construction Peab will do groundwork like forest clearing, blasting, road construction and cable laying.

"We thank Statnett for entrusting us with this project and look forward to starting work on the new transformer station. It means a lot to us to be able to contribute to a project that ensures a reliable electricity supply to residents and businesses in Hålogaland. Since the work is being carried out in high voltage substations the demands on planning and on work environment and safety procedures are stringent," says Trygve Nilsen, District Manager at Peab.

The project is a traditional contract. Construction will begin in May and it will be handed over in several stages during the autumn of 2025.

The project will be order registered in the second quarter 2024.
