Engineering contractor Balfour Beatty have been awarded a contract to replace a 400kV substation at Littlebrook Power Station in Kent.
The £50m, five-year deal is an important step in National Grid’s revitalisation of the National Transmission Network in the South East of England.
The contract covers the design and construction of the large substation, from cabling and overhead line connections to the grid through to the switchgear protecting the substation.
Ian Currie, Managing Director of Balfour Beatty’s Power Transmission and Distribution business said: “Our extensive knowledge and ability to provide an integrated solution in the delivery of high-voltage substations makes us ideally positioned to help National Grid secure the power supply to the South East of England for years to come.”
Work is set to begin in the summer, with 100 people to be employed at the busiest points on construction.
