Interserve wins contracts with ScottishPower Energy Networks

by Interserve Press Office | Nov 26, 2012
Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has won two multi-million pound contracts to refurbish existing overhead lines for ScottishPower, due to commence in March 2013.
The two 132,000 Volt power lines, situated in Connahs Quay and Bangor, require approximately 40km of overhead line route to be upgraded. Working closely with ScottishPower Energy Networks, Interserve's overhead line specialists will upgrade steelwork and foundations on the existing towers, change conductors, insulators and fittings to extend the life expectancy of the lines.

These contracts form part of a significant investment by ScottishPower Energy Networks to modernise the existing infrastructure supplying homes and businesses in the area.

Steve Chantler from ScottishPower comments: "These works form a key part of our declared capital investment programme and we look forward to developing a sound working relationship to ensure their successful delivery."

Ian Maddison, Interserve Divisional Director - Power says: "We are delighted to win two major projects with ScottishPower. In addition to delivering the projects safely and efficiently, a major consideration in the construction will be managing the environmental impact of the works. We will have stringent construction management plans and temporary works in place to mitigate any risks. It will be an exciting project and we're looking forward to getting started next year."
