    Mainline CEO Jamie O’Rourke said Mainline will complete the work in less than 18 months, in challenging, and near Arctic conditions for large parts of the year.

    “We have just completed a smaller wind farm project inside the Arctic circle in Sweden, and this latest contract is our second significant project win in Sweden. Our ability to adapt our proven processes to Swedish requirements has been key to winning these projects in a very competitive commercial environment with local and international players in the market.

    “Our construction, procurement and design teams in Mainline have proven themselves to be able to compete with the best, and lessons learned in Sweden can be applied to major power infrastructural projects in the future back here in Ireland,” said Mr O’Rourke.

    Mainline is also the lead electrical contractor on Dublin Airport’s €300 million-plus North Runway project, charged with building two new power sub-stations and installing over 2,000 runway, taxiway and approach lights, and more than 500 kilometres of power and fibre optic cabling.
