The contract runs for an initial three years, with an estimated value of £30m a year. There is an option to extend by a further two years.
The scope of works includes dig and lay services for new connections, infrastructure asset work and the repair of network faults, as well as all associated traffic management and reinstatement.
The award of the framework means that Morrison Utility Services will maintain its existing operational footprint in the East Midlands, whilst extending its geographical coverage to the northern patch including Derby, Nottingham, Chesterfield, Mansfield and large areas of the Peak District National Park.
Chief executive Charles Morrison said: “We look forward to supporting Western Power Distribution’s commitment to operate a safe and reliable electricity network across the East Midlands region and, as ever, our objective will be to deliver operational excellence with a clear and consistent focus on health, safety and strong customer service."
