The new contract with Northern Powergrid is worth approximately £3m per year and runs for three years, with an option to extend for a further two.
The framework agreement is being carried out extra high voltage (EHV) towers throughout the northeast and Yorkshire. The framework is part of a wider refurbishment programme that will secure electrical distribution to 3.8 million Northern Powergrid customers.
This contract win is in addition to two other on-going frameworks that Interserve has with Northern Powergrid. Interserve is also currently contracted to undertake supply and installation of EHV cables as well as EHV wood-pole overhead lines operating at 132kV, 66kV and 33kV.
Interserve industrial managing director Guy Bruce said: “The project requires considerable engineering and technical skills, already proven with Northern Powergrid as well as our wider client base. We have worked in this field for over 90 years and are working alongside our client to ensure that Yorkshire and the north-ast have a well-founded electrical infrastructure in place for the future.”
