Amec Foster Wheeler has announces that it has won four contracts from SP Energy Networks to construct three new overhead power lines and refurbish a further overhead line, all in South West Scotland. The value of the contracts, which are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2016, has not been disclosed.
The work is being carried out for SP Energy Networks, and will provide power on behalf of supply companies through a network of power lines that they own and maintain. The new lines support the UK Government’s renewable energy objectives by enabling renewable energy to be distributed from Scotland to England and Wales. For the three new-build projects Amec Foster Wheeler is responsible for the design, supply and construction of three 132 kilovolt overhead lines extending over 52 kilometres through Ayrshire. The fourth contract involves the modernisation of an existing overhead line between Kilmarnock and Coylton, also in Ayrshire.
