Amey recently obtained a four-year extension to the existing 400kV contract with Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) for the civil and electrical design, construction and commissioning of a number of substations.
This agreement will help strengthen SSEN’s existing network to expand in line with the load associated with several offshore renewable energy projects and submarine cable projects. Amey has also reached an agreement with Huawei to pilot-test a fiber-to-the-home project in the Midlands. Both firms are interested in a long-term partnership to support fiber connectivity for households across the United Kingdom.
David McLoughlin, Amey’s MD for Utilities:
“These are exciting times as our energy business has experienced significant growth in recent months. We are pleased to have won these contracts, which bear testimony to our teams’ dedication to keeping our customers connected.”
