The Project

Suppliers & Procurement

In September 2021 we announced that a consortium comprising Siemens Energy AG (Siemens Energy) and Sumitomo Electric Industries Ltd (Sumitomo Electric) have been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract for the Greenlink electricity interconnector project.   This was following a procurement process that started in August 2018 with an invitation for expressions of interest to tender.  

 

Construction of the Greenlink electricity Interconector is scheduled to start in early 2022. Greenlink and its appointed contractors, Siemens Energy and Sumitomo Electric, are committed to offering local supply chain opportunities wherever possible.

  • meet representatives from Siemens Energy and Sumitomo Electric to discuss what their business can offer 

  • find out how to bid for contracts.
