Electricity generation, transmission, transformation and distribution services provider, Omexom, has been awarded substation contracts totalling more than £9 million.
The work across the 12 contracts involves the extension or refurbishment of substations in England and Scotland, with three contracts located across the North East of England, generating over £3 million.
Omexom’s work in the North East will involve the installation and modifications to transmission equipment for customer Northern Powergrid (NPG).
The latest contract wins have been awarded by NPG which Omexom, previously known as Powerteam, has worked with for the last five years.
These recent wins are in addition to the £3 million renewable energy contracts the company announced in October.
Phil Nicholson, business unit general manager for Omexom UK Substations, said: “It is hugely exciting to have been awarded 12 new contracts for substation refurbishment and extension across Scotland and England.
“The latest contract wins are another significant step in establishing Omexom as a leading electrical infrastructure provider throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland.
“The huge amount of work we have been awarded by NPG in recent years is a reflection of the highest quality and standards continuously delivered by our staff and we look forward to continuing those partnerships with these new projects.”
Under parent company VINCI Energies, Omexom is responsible for delivering electrical power generation, transmission, transformation and distribution services.
Omexom UK & RoI’s managing director, Alastair Dawson, said: “In a highly competitive market, we are very pleased with our recent successes both in the areas of substation design, construction and refurbishment, and wind farms, which are testament to the satisfaction of our customers and their confidence in Omexom’s ability to deliver work which exceeds the highest of standards.”
The projects will take between six and eighteen months to complete, with many already in the early stages of design.
