ICPMA Award recognizes excellent services in Project Management
The Gridbooster Kupferzell is being constructed in northeastern Baden-Württemberg (Germany) as the world's largest grid battery storage project with a total capacity of 250 MW, covering an area of 4.5 soccer fields (approx. 34,000 m²). The battery storage facility works as a pilot project for ensuring a stable and efficient energy supply network in Germany. CDM Smith is responsible for the comprehensive planning and engineering services for structural and civil engineering, groundwork and concrete construction, including construction works. This also includes the execution planning as well as structural engineering of all buildings on the site. In the course of execution planning, CDM Smith also developed a 3D model (BIM) of the future network amplifier site, and will continuously revise this during the construction phase.
We are tremendously proud we had the opportunity to make such a significant contribution to Germany's national energy transition.
At the award ceremony, Constantin Prins, PhD (Project Management) as well as Benjamin Bartsch and Lukas Wallrabe (Business Development) accepted the prize in the presence of our client Fluence, represented by Timothy Frantz.
