The Wintrack high voltage pylon is one of three nominees for the National Steel Prize 2016 in the category industrial construction.
Commissioned by TenneT, and in close cooperation with DNV GL, ZJA developed an innovative high voltage pylon that results in a substantial reduction of the magnetic fields generated by power lines. The new pylon has a 60% reduced electromagnetic field compared to the conventional lattice pylons. Moreover, it’s sleek design and colouring minimalizes the impact on both the landscape and the environment.
The National Steel Prize is a biennial award in various categories for inspiring applications of steel in construction. The jury will announce the winning projects on October 11th, 2016 during the National Steel Construction Day in Amsterdam.
