Amey lands major power wins
Amey has been awarded a four-year extension to the existing Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks' (SSEN) framework for the design, build and commissioning of new substations in Scotland.
23rd August 2018 by Networks
The framework will help to reinforce SSEN’s existing network to enable load related growth associated with various onshore and offshore renewable energy and subsea cable projects.
Amey is working in a joint venture with GE Power’s Solutions business on this framework.
The company recently announced a new construction contract to provide power for a part of the HS2 build, running up until March 2019. They will deliver the detailed design, installation and construction of two new temporary substations to power the tunnelling equipment used to support the build of the Chiltern Tunnel South Portal.
The company has also re-entered the telecoms market working with Huawei to pilot a fibre to the home programme across the Midlands area. Both Amey and Huawei are keen to establish a long-term partnership supporting the fibre connectivity of homes across the UK.
Amey’s managing director for utilities, David McLoughlin, said: “This is an exciting time for us as our power business has seen significant growth over the last few months. We’re delighted to have secured these contracts, which are testament to the dedication and skills of our teams working across the business to ensure our customers stay connected.”
