Planning the cable route for the Worms 2 wind park, Worms

Our client wanted to create the Worms 2 wind park with a nominal output of ca. 3 MWp. The wind park, consisting of seven wind energy plants, was sited in the Pfeddersheim, Abenheim and Mörstadt districts. igr was commissioned with the planning and the securing of easements for the cable route from the wind park to the feed-in point.

In cooperation with the environmental authorities, the ecological inspections of the entire route were carried out, and the water law authorisations for every waterway crossing applied for. To list and investigate every service line crossing point, all the relevant service providers were contacted. The implementation plan concluded with survey point lists and tender documents. Besides technical civil engineering planning, the project included on-site construction supervision, construction surveying, as-built surveying and processing documentation.
