The framework will cover the RIIO-T2 regulatory period, running from 2021 to 2026, and includes the option to extend for an additional two years.

The framework has been awarded by National Grid on a non-exclusive basis and is divided into three Lots with the MUS/Jacobs joint venture awarded a place on EPC Lot 3 – Substations.
