Danish Advanced Technology Foundation Grant for Power Pylons of the Future

18-03-14

Innovayt has helped the Danish company Bystrup Architecture and Design with the development and presentation of a proposal to the Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation. The project was approved for funding and will receive a grant of 15.000.000DKK.

The project “PoPyFu” targets a unique market opportunity for design-driven redevelopment of overhead transmission lines (OHTLs), by developing innovative, composite-based pylons that enable new, value-added designs and technical solutions. PoPyFu’s aims at the next generation of design OHTLs with benefits to both end-users (TSOs) and the public, by developing new design pylons that are smaller, more compact and are more visually acceptable.

Brian Endahl from Bystrup coments on Innovayt’s work: “The cooperation with Innovayt was guided by professionalism throughout. From the first conversation to the final application Innovayt have, with a steady hand, guided the process and been crucial to the allocation of funding from the Foundation. I would not hesitate to use Innovayt again.”
