BGEN has been awarded two multi-million pound framework agreements by National Grid. The agreements, with National Grid Electrical Transmission (NGET) and National Grid Gas (NGG), will see BGEN undertake a range of electrical-related services to help maintain and upgrade the company’s infrastructure.
The five-year agreement will see BGEN become one of six companies responsible for delivering work under the Auxiliary Systems Lot of the Light Current Turnkey Works Agreement. The framework includes the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of works within a live high-voltage transmission network substation environment. It also incorporates relevant cyber elements within substations as part of National Grid’s asset replacement and build programme.
For NGG, BGEN, along with one other company, will deliver work under the Electrical Lot, one of four lots of a five-year framework. The framework aims to bring together the best suppliers in the electrical, control and instrumentation market to deliver asset replacements and upgrades across its network.
“The contracts secured with National Grid are testament to our excellent track record and comprehensive range of services we offer to companies in the utilities sector,” says Ian Oliver, managing director – technology, at BGEN. “We have an experienced and diverse workforce in place to provide a range of services to help deliver National Grid’s asset replacement and upgrade programmes.”
The National Grid framework wins build on BGEN’s impressive credentials in the utilities sector. The company was one of seven businesses recently awarded a £5 billion contract by Scottish Water to deliver one of the country’s biggest capital investment infrastructure programmes.
Following several contract wins over the summer, the company is currently on a major recruitment drive, looking to expand its workforce from 860 to more than 1,000 employees.
