ACT NOW: submit expressions of interest by 31 January to access £5.4B of contracts with SP Energy Networks

ScottishPower’s grid business, SP Energy Networks, is encouraging companies with the skills and experience to bid for contracts to design, develop and upgrade new and existing strategic transmission infrastructure as it unveils £5.4 billion worth of contract opportunities.
The work will include new high voltage substations, overhead line construction, design, engineering, construction, and electrical works.
The supply chain invitation is the company’s biggest issued contract opportunity ever.
Vicky Kelsall, CEO of SP Energy Networks, said: “This is one of the most significant infrastructure roll outs to upgrade the grid to support the electrification of the wider economy. We’ve got the plans and we’ve got the financial capital to invest, and the UK supply chain stands ready to benefit to the tune of billions.”
The £5.4 billion worth of contracts will cover the next 10 years and includes transmission projects across central and southern Scotland. It will help connect 80-85GW of renewable energy to the GB transmission system and reduce the UK’s reliance on fossil fuels.
In November, the UK government announced plans to halve the time it takes to build high voltage power lines and cut the time it takes to connect to the grid.
