THE ECP PROJECT

PROJECT GOALS

The European Composite Pylon is a Horizon 2020 funded project with the goal of realizing 3 full-scale, 2x400kV Composite Power Pylons according to the EN50341. 

BENEFITS

The new pylon will be less than half the size of traditional steel solutions and more easily integrated into the landscape. 

BACKGROUND

The project builds on initial research by Danish Universities and the practical experience of the partners.

ECP Project Cooperation and Business Model: 

On behalf of the consortium, Valmont SM will act as prime contractor for future projects, building on its extensive experience with OHTL projects. 

MR Power Composites, NEXANS and DERVAUX will act as sub suppliers. BYSTRUP will act as sub consultants providing engineering if nessecary.

Also, Valmont SM will be responsible for providing the installation of the towers and foundations if required.
