Yorkshire Water appoints firm for HV framework
Published: 30 October 2019 - Carly Wills
Electrical engineering firm, Smith Brothers Contracting, has secured a position on Yorkshire Water’s high-voltage (HV) electrical design, build, and specialist studies services framework – which carries a total forecast value of up to £55m.
The framework will deliver high-voltage electrical works and services, alongside routine planned and reactive inspection and maintenance to Yorkshire Water’s existing high-voltage equipment.
The power contracting firm will take responsibly for all projects in the west region, for a minimum of four years – to February 2023 – with the first being the design and build of a new 11kV customer substation, and the replacement of a motor control centre (MCC).
Martin Priestley, senior engineering project manager at Yorkshire Water, said: “We are confident these appointments will contribute to the consistent and efficient provision of safe, quality, reliable assets, that will in turn help us to ensure we provide the level of service our customers expect and value.”
