550 kV Take-off yard in Laos – Erected

Three years after EIB started design works on the take-off yard in a major hydro power plant in Laos, Xayaburi, the installation of equipment and structures is nearly completed. Visually most impressive, surely, is the 550 kV gantry, which ensures the connection to the two overhead lines. Its statue towering over the installation at over 40 meters height (when lightning rods are considered), it is a sight to put things in perspective.
