Interserve, the international support services and construction group, has been appointed to two framework agreements with CE Electric UK, the company responsible for delivering electricity safely and reliably to 3.8 million customers across north-east England, Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.
The first is a three-year framework with scope to extend for a further two years and two more beyond that. Interserve is one of three organisations that is contracted to undertake the supply and installation of extra-high-voltage (EHV) cables throughout CE Electric UK’s licensed geographic zones in the north-east and Yorkshire. The total value of the framework is £30 million per year.
The work includes diverting overhead lines and existing installed cables for land development, new connections to clients and wind farms, asset replacement of old, oil-filled cables with alternatives using new technology, and network reinforcement to meet the higher electrical demands.
The second is a five-year framework with scope to extend for a further two. Interserve is one of two organisations contracted to supply and install all EHV wood-pole overhead lines operating at 132kV, 66kV and 33kV, also within the northeast and Yorkshire areas. The framework is worth £20 million over its initial five-year term.
It includes all elements of new construction, refurbishment, dismantling, material procurement, installation, records and project management. The project also covers overhead line works associated with EHV substation and underground cable projects as well as the recovery of overhead line circuits.
Bill Craig, Interserve Managing Director – Industrial, said:
“Interserve has over 90 years’ experience delivering a range of highly specialised services to the power transmission and distribution market both in the UK and overseas. We are excited to be involved in these extremely high profile projects and are committed to providing the highest quality of service across all elements of the programme.”
