Morgan Sindall Infrastructure has secured a place on National Grid’s RIIO-2 electricity construction Engineer, Procure and Construct (EPC) framework. The initial term of the framework is five years, with a further option for a two year extension.
The framework is effective from April 2021 and will involve the construction, refurbishment and decommissioning of both overhead line (OHL) and underground cable systems operating between 33kV to 400kV across National Grid’s transmission network.
Morgan Sindall Infrastructure is one of three companies to have been appointed for the overhead line works and one of four companies to have been appointed for the underground works. It is estimated that over the lifetime of the framework approximately £1bn to £1.5bn will be invested in delivering these works.
Simon Smith, managing director of Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, says: “We are extremely pleased to have secured a position on this framework. We are looking forward to continuing to build on our long-term relationship with National Grid, working collaboratively with them to deliver a clean and efficient electricity transmission network and supporting the UK’s transition to greener energy to achieve net zero by 2050.”
