Consortium chosen as regular supplier for continued development of Dutch high-voltage grid.

DNV GL and Grontmij have signed a framework agreement with TenneT TSO for the provision of engineering services.Based on the framework agreement, the consortium and its partners Roos+Bijl and Joulz will support TenneT in the further development of the Dutch high-voltage grid as preferred supplier for connections and approved supplier for stations.

"As a longstanding partner of TenneT, DNV GL (formerly KEMA) – as a consortium member – delivers its expertise to support TenneT’s ambitions in integrating more renewables and securing a reliable energy supply in the future," said Jacob Ruiter, director Benelux DNV GL - Energy.

In the coming years, TenneT plans to execute a large investment programme to make its network and systems future-proof, considering the increasing production of renewable energy from wind farms. Also, connections with neighbouring countries in Europe are likely to be expanded. Safety, security of supply and cost effectiveness are paramount. In essence, it’s about an extension of the national energy transportation capacity and system improvement and renewal.
