|Description||April 22 (Renewables Now) - Two Danish companies, offshore wind powerhouse Ørsted A/S (CPH:ORSTED) and pension fund ATP, said today they have teamed up to bid in the upcoming tender for the Danish North Sea energy island. In February, Denmark reached a broad political agreement to build an artificial island in the North Sea surrounded by offshore wind turbines with a potential capacity of 10 GW. According to an announcement by the energy ministry at the time, the government wants to realise the DKK-210-billion (USD 34bn/EUR 28bn) project through a public-private partnership and plans to open a tender to select private partners. Ultimately, the state will own the majority of the island. The newly unveiled partnership brings together Ørsteds offshore wind expertise with the capabilities of Denmarks largest institutional investor with DKK 960 billion of funds. Ørsted chief executive Mads Nipper said the energy island "will be absolutely key to the continued build-out of offshore wind in the Danish North Sea." It can make a significant contribution towards the green transition in Denmark and Europe, the companies noted. "The North Sea energy island is a very interesting investment case for ATP, because it can contribute to good and stable pensions and develop Danish industrial positions of strength while also being a decisive lever for the green transition in Denmark," said ATP chief executive Bo Foged. The companies said they will look into the optimal integration of Power-to-X with the energy island and the future North Sea energy infrastructure. Ørsted has developed a portfolio of Power-to-X projects around the North Sea that are planned to be connected to offshore wind, according to the announcement.|

|Description||Sterling Construction’s subsidiary Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction has been selected by Utah Department of Transportation to renew sections of the interstate I-80 and I-215 highways. Work on the sections, which run through Salt Lake Valley, will start in May and will take about two years to complete. This project consists of the removal and replacement of existing concrete pavement, the design and replacement of four bridge structures and widening and adding lanes to several highway sections. Two of the bridges will be constructed using accelerated bridge construction, sometimes called the ABC method. It involves the use of advanced technologies to assemble a bridge offsite and then transport it to site for installation, said Joe Cutillo, chief executive of Sterling. “This sizeable project gives us the opportunity to showcase our highly differentiated accelerated bridge construction capabilities,” said Cutillo. “ABC…dramatically shortens the amount of time it takes to replace a bridge, which translates into substantially reduced traffic impacts and inconvenience to motorists in the area around a job site. Additionally, ABC substantially improves work-zone safety for both drivers and contractor personnel and minimises environmental impact, relative to conventional bridge construction methods.” According to the website of Ralph L. Wadsworth Construction, the company is “a pioneer” in accelerated bridge construction and reduced construction schedules and traffic disruptions through lateral slides, bridge launches and self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs), which can allow bridge replacements to be completed in a single 24-hour closure. Among the company’s projects is the longest two-span bridge ever moved by SPMTs in the western hemisphere - the Sam White Bridge on Utah’s I-15 corridor expansion project. The 354-foot (105m), two-span steel girder Sam White Bridge over the Interstate I-15 in the city American Fork was designed by Michael Baker International engineering consultancy. The bridge was built in a staging area about 500 feet (152m) from the original structure and then moved into place in about five hours during the night using self-propelled modular transporters. Sterling Construction’s various subsidiaries specialise in heavy civil, specialty services and residential projects in the primarily across southern US states, the Rocky Mountain region, California and Hawaii.|

|Description||Improvement works will be carried out on I-35 in Texas, which runs north-south across the state. A contract worth US$1.5 billion for the work was awarded to Webber, a subsidiary of the firm Ferrovial. The work will be carried out in San Antonio, one of the fastest growing cities in the US. The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) awarded Webber the package, which is for the Interstate 35 Northeast Expansion (NEX) design-build project. With this latest package of works, Webber and its parent Ferrovial will handle the design, construction and maintenance for a key stretch of I-35. The project consists of the design, construction and maintenance of approximately 15km of non-tolled improvements along I-35 including the construction of approximately 29km of additional elevated main lanes. The project scope of work consists of construction of elevated managed lanes between the existing main lanes and frontage roads and eight bridges, and the reconstruction and widening of the Loop 1604 general purpose lanes and bridges. It includes more than 800 spans of bridge construction and 4,500 concrete beams. The highway is important for the state, linking the border at Laredo in Mexico with the major cities of San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth. The route suffers heavy congestion along a number of key stretches. With a major programme of widening having been planned by TxDOT. This section of the route will be operated without tolls once the work is complete. The construction work is expected to commence in 2022 and should take until 2026 before the stretch is ready for traffic. Meanwhile, other improvements being carried out to I-35 at Williams Drive include building a new bridge over the highway. This will be for a diverging diamond intersection. There will also be work to build northbound and southbound intersection bypass lanes under the Williams Drive bridge, extending the northbound I-35 frontage road from Williams Drive to the Lakeway Drive exit ramp. Improvements will be carried out to the existing southbound I-35 frontage road, the Austin Avenue intersection at Williams Drive, while bicycle and pedestrian paths will be built. Work started in the third quarter of 2020 and should be complete in mid-2023. The project is being carried out by JD Abrams and the work is worth $61.7 million.|
