Carillion in £86M Canadian power link deal

NCE stock energy

A joint venture including a Carillion subsidiary has won a £86M contract to build a power transmission line in Canada.

The joint venture called Eus-Rokstad, consists of Emera Utility Services and Rokstad Power, a business in which Carillion acquired a 60% share in 2014. It was selected by NSP Maritime Link for the Maritime Link Project.

The line will connect Newfoundland to the North American grid for the first time and transmit energy from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia. Work will involve building around 190km of high voltage transmission line across both provinces, including the construction of pylon foundations and anchors, pylon assembly and erection and the stringing of conductors. The contract is scheduled for completion by April 2017.

Carillion chief executive Richard Howson said: “We are delighted to have been selected to deliver this important project, which reflects the experience, skills and strength of Rokstad. We look forward to working closely with Emera Utility Services and NSP Maritime Link to deliver this key transmission link into the North American grid.”
