Costain has won a £113M contract from National Grid to upgrade its Peterborough and Huntingdon compressor stations.
The award follows Costain’s completion of a front end engineering design (FEED) project for National Grid. The company will now undertake design, decommissioning, build and re-commissioning of the two compressor stations. The work will ensure both compressor stations comply with the Industrial Emissions Directive and Pollution Prevention and Control regulations.
The project also hopes to increase system resilience and reduce overall risk on the National Transmission System by replacing ageing assets with more efficient equipment.
“This is another example of Costain’s strategy in action. From design and delivery to programme management, we are providing a full range of engineering solutions to National Grid to help them meet national needs by providing a secure and sustainable energy supply,” explained Costain chief executive Andrew Wyllie.
