Northern Powergrid invests £4m on improving Hull’s underground power network

According to the company, this investment will ensure the city continues to receive a reliable electricity supply and help prepare for future demands as the area sees a continued growth in use of solar panels, heat pumps and electric vehicles.

The work, which is about to enter its second phase, will see the installation of some 6,000 metres of new 33,000 volt underground cables across the city.

Northern Powergrid’s project manager, Ian Forster,said: “Our investment is great news for the city and will mean homes and businesses across Hull continue to benefit from a safe, secure and reliable power supply for decades to come.

“We’ve already completed the first phase of our improvement works, which has seen 3,100 metres of 33,000 volt cable ducting laid between our Hull South substation on Hessle Road and Porter Street. 

“The second phase of our work is due to start on the 23 July and will see our contractors, O’Connor Utilities, lay a further 2,900 metres of cable ducting.”
