Transmission & Distribution

Generating & Transmitting Electricity

Finding economically and environmentally sustainable ways to transmit electricity, ÅF can assist you from idea to delivery.

From feasability studies to commercial delivery, ÅF engineers have the know-how to help you to transmit electrical energy to your clients in a reliable, cost-effective and sustainable way to drive social growth while also protecting the environment.

Based on many years of international experience and interdisciplinary projects, we are able to assist you in all areas of the electric power sector.

We can assist you with the cost-effective and sustainable development, building, and operation of networks for electrical power transmission and generation.

We place particular emphasis on environmental concerns, state-of-the-art technology, economics and sustainability.

Our activities cover high, medium and low voltage switchgears, complete network substations, distribution networks, low voltage transformers, power transformer stations and compensation systems.

We also provide expert services in the field of network calculations and analysis of electromagnetic fields in addition to general project tasks such as studies, concepts, specifications and system evaluation. Our scope of work also cover certification measurements and engineering services in the field of ancillary services.

Our transmission line projects range from distribution lines and distribution networks to underground cable systems and high voltage transmission lines. We have extensive experience in transmission line projects in difficult areas, be it at extreme altitudes, such as the snow and ice-covered Alps, or in remote areas of Asia and Africa.
