Balfour Beatty has signed the initial three year contract, worth circa £37.5m, to manage planned and reactive low voltage to 33Kv cabling works. By assisting our client to maintain the integrity of their network, we are helping to provide a continual supply of energy to the region.
Neil Kirkby, Balfour Beatty managing director – Power Transmission & Distribution, said: ‘Securing this new framework agreement is once again recognition of the capability and expertise we bring to the industry. We have worked with Western Power Distribution for over 20 years and we’re looking forward to continuing this relationship.’
Balfour Beatty is committed to providing benefits to the local communities in which they operate and the project will include approximately 170 employees with 90 per cent of this direct employment for Balfour Beatty, and a cohort of local sub-contractors who have remained on the contract for several years.
