Balfour Beatty wins £290M transmission contract

Contractor Balfour Beatty has won a £290M contract from energy firm Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission to replace the electricity lines between Neauly and Wharry Burn in Scotland.

Balfour Beatty will be replacing the existing 132kV line with a new 400kV transmission line for Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission, a subsidiary of energy firm Scottish and Southern E.

The scheme involves the project development, design, material provision and installation of a 200km double circuit 400kV overhead electricity transmission line, including civils and access works.

Work is part of the Beauly-Denny scheme to upgrade the transmission lines from 132kV to 400kV. The project is due for completion in 2015.
