Olympic substation contract awarded

EDF Energy Contracting yesterday won the contract to design and build a key electrical substation within London's Olympic Park.
The energy firm's contracting arm must design, construct, test and commission a primary substation to serve both the Olympic Park and its neighbouring Stratford City development.Awarded jointly by the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA) and Stratford City Development, the contract requires the substation to be located in the west of the Olympic Park at Kings Yard.Detailed design work will commence immediately, with construction starting at the end of the year and due to complete by 2009.ODA infrastructure and utilities director Simon Wright said: 'The contract for the electrical substation is the first piece in the jigsaw for the utilities network and the letting of the major utilities contracts later this year will be a big step towards delivering a first class infrastructure for the Olympic Park.'A series of contracts for the installation and operation of the new utilities during and after the Games is currently out to tender.The contracts have been issued in 7 lots including gas, water, sewerage and electrical networks, and are expected to be awarded in Autumn 2007.
