Ritchies wins £1.5M transmission line ground investigation contract

Geotechnical contractor Bam Ritchies has been appointed by Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions to carry out a ground investigation for a new 200km Scottish power transmission line.

The project for Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission, a subsidiary of SSE (Scottish and Southern Energy) will involve construction of a 400kV overhead power line between Beauly and Wharry Burn.

Ritchies contract for the ground investigation is valued at £1.5M and is expected to be completed in spring next year but there is also potential for a further £2M worth of work to be awarded next year.
