Airport’s power infrastructure to be delivered by UKPN Services

The company will be required to build a new airfield substation and transfer critical electrical infrastructure from an existing substation located in the middle of a taxiway. The project will also include high voltage and low voltage cabling and airfield ground lighting works.

Moving the substation will make way for a wider dual parallel taxiway, which will support the airport’s requirement to expand a number of taxiways and allow an increase in aircraft traffic and airport capacity.

This project is part of the £1 billion Manchester Airport Transformation Programme that will see an expansion to airport terminals, car parks, aircraft stands and air bridges, enhancing its role as the UK’s gateway for the north.

Ian Smyth, director of UK Power Networks Services, said: “We are delighted to be selected by Manchester Airport Group as their delivery partner for this mission critical project. This project will support Manchester Airport in providing an enhanced experience to its customers for many years to come.

“We will deliver a world-class engineering solution to ensure Manchester Airport continues to be the global gateway for residents and businesses in the north of England and Wales.”
