Amey to build two electrical substations for UK’s HS2 high-speed rail line


Pylon at electric station

Amey, the British subsidiary of Ferrovial Services, has been awarded the design, installation and construction of two electrical substations to support the development of the HS2 high-speed rail line in the United Kingdom.

The project will connect London and Birmingham via a high-speed train in a first phase, with a second stage extending two lines to Manchester and Leeds.

The two substations will support the construction of the Chiltern Tunnel south portal. The first will receive power from SSEN (Scottish and Southern Electricity Network) with a voltage of 132kV, which will be reduced to 33kV. The second will lower that voltage to 11kV, providing power for the tunneling work.

The HS2 program is an exciting piece of work for us and is testament to the skills and expertise of our long serving and dedicated workforce. The construction of the new substations will enable us to provide power to support the delivery of the Chiltern Tunnel for HS2.
