Balfour Beatty has bagged two contracts worth £43.5M to install electric cabling in Scotland
Under the first contract, worth £35M, Balfour Beatty will offer design, supply, installation and commissioning services for a 103km stretch of overhead electric cables running between Beauly, Nairn, Elgin and Keith in northern Scotland.
The second £7.5M contract will see the firm work on design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of underground cabling sections of the route.
Both contracts were awarded by Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission – part of electricity distribution firm Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks – as part of its F2 Overhead Line General Works Framework and its 132kV Underground Cable Works Framework.
Balfour Beatty power transmission and distribution operations director Andy Smith said: “These two contracts are testament to Balfour Beatty’s ability to support our clients through the development stages of projects, identifying design solutions and value engineering opportunities.”
