A joint venture between Morrison Energy Services and Jacobs has been awarded a place on National Grid Electricity Transmission’s six-year substations engineering procurement construction (EPC) framework
The framework has been established for the design, engineering, manufacture, supply, project management, build, erection and commissioning of high voltage electricity substation works.
Morrison Energy Services will lead on operational delivery and Jacobs will focus on design and integrated programme management.
Works will include:
- New build air-insulated switchgear (AIS) / gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) substations
- AIS/GIS substation extensions
- Major AIS/GIS substation asset replacements.
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.
