Rock solid anchoring for design pylons at Lysefjorden

Rock solid anchoring for design pylons at Lysefjorden

Press releases   •   Dec 11, 2017 10:09 GMT

A scenic hiking trail in Norway starts at Øygardstølen and leads to spectacular Kjerag, 1,000 vertical meters above Lysefjorden, east of Stavanger. Upgrading the country's power grid involves a new 420 kV power line, with pylons that had to be constructed close to the parking at Øygardstølen. NGI was responsible for the design of solid rock anchoring of the new pylons to carry the power lines.
