Fichtner and Arup forms joint venture

Fichtner has entered a joint venture (JV) with Built environment consultancy Arup, to provide project services for the NeuConnect Interconnector which will directly link UK and German electricity grids for the first time.


The 1400 MW submarine and land cable system will connect two of Europe’s largest energy markets, promoting the efficient use and integration of renewable energy generation resources in both Germany and the UK.

The JV will provide project and commercial management, SHEQ and consenting oversight, as well as a comprehensive multidisciplinary technical team delivering an owner’s engineer / client representative role for the onshore and offshore elements of the project.

When completed, NeuConnect will be one of the world’s longest interconnectors and the one of the first of its kind to be funded through a project financing arrangement.
