Scotland's SSE awards line refurbishment contract to Balfour Beatty [free access]

April 24, 2017

Scotland's Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSE) has awarded a contract for the design and refurbishment of five 132 kV overhead lines across Southern England, to British construction company Balfour Beatty.


Balfour Beatty will be responsible for the steelworks, foundations and refurbishment of conductors across all five lines. The scope of the contract also includes supply of all wayleaves, undergrounding and under-crossings, along with other associated works such as scaffolding and access works. To reduce outages and deliver cost efficiencies, the contractor is expected to refurbish two lines simultaneously.
