Construction News Image
Amey has landed a £40 million framework to deliver works on the Northern Powergrid electricity line in the North East.

The contractor will carry out overhead line condition and vegetation surveys on the Powergrid line.

This four-year framework continues Amey's work delivering vegetation management for Northern Powergrid in the North East, while also expanding its services to include Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire.

Andy Milner, Chief Executive at Amey said: "Helping Northern Powergrid to provide a safe and reliable power supply to customers' homes is extremely important to us.

"The framework further strengthens our position as a trusted partner in the power sector, and we look forward to continuing our longstanding partnership with Northern Powergrid."

Steve MacDonald, Head of Programme Delivery at Northern Powergrid, added: "Clearance of vegetation from our 800 miles of overhead power network helps reduce the potential for trees making contact with our power lines during severe weather or snapped branches hitting our network causing damage and power cuts for our customers.

"The four-year framework with Amey is part of our major investment programme which will ensure the 3.9 million homes we deliver power to, continue to have a safe, secure and reliable electricity supply for years to come."
