The power pylons carry a 2×400 kV high voltage line 172 kilometers from Kassø to Tjele in Jutland, Denmark. The eagle pylon family includes a suspension pylon, flying angle for small line deviations, a tensions pylon and a terminal pylon. The flying angle pylon features a novel V-shaped insulator arrangement, which was developed in collaboration with an insulator manufacturer during the design process.
The new connection is being built next to the old line of power pylons, which will be removed once the new line is complete.
Krabbenhøft & Ingolfsson carried out the full engineering development of the pylon family in close collaboration with the architects.
The design commenced in 2010, and the pylons are still being built and installed in Jutland.
