Keltbray bags £140m haul of energy infrastructure work

Aaron Morby 1 year ago

Diversified specialist engineering contractor Keltbray has secured a £140m haul of orders to deliver critical energy infrastructure for key energy distribution network operators and renewable energy companies.

The deals cement Keltbray’s presence in the fast-growing energy and renewables infrastructure sector to support the UK’s energy security and net zero agendas, through the ongoing maintenance and decarbonisation of the UK’s electricity grid.

They include three framework deals with major power providers as well as two new battery storage facilities and the structural steel package for the boiler house on a energy from waste plant in Cheshire.

Darren James, chief executive officer at Keltbray, said: “These projects mark an important milestone in the delivery of our strategy to redefine the way sustainable development is delivered, where we see increasing demand for Keltbray’s integrated capabilities in critical infrastructure sectors like energy.”

Contract wins

  • UK Power Networks multi-year distribution framework contract for the refurbishment and replacement of the distribution infrastructure from low voltage to 33kV networks in the Eastern region.
  • Northern Ireland Electricity Networks multi-year framework for the maintenance refurbishment and replacement of the distribution overhead line network from low voltage to 33kV.
  • ScottishPower multi-year framework for low voltage services modernisation, including the replacement of looped services that will enable the network to be able to respond to the additional requirements that will be driven by the sustainability and carbon reduction agenda.
  • SSE Scotland multi-year framework for the maintenance, refurbishment and replacement of the distribution overhead line network from low voltage to 33kV in the north of Scotland.
  • Harmony Energy for the design and construction of two Battery Energy Storage Sites to be built in Yorkshire and Teesside in 2023. The two sites combined will have the capacity to store over 90MW of electricity.
  • Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant structural steel package for the main boiler house, as part of a new-build Energy from Waste facility near Northwich in Cheshire that will, when fully operational, export 70MW of electricity to the grid using residual waste, meeting the energy needs of 148,000 homes.

Mike Snee, managing director of Keltbray’s Energy business, said: “Keltbray’s highly collaborative approach to design and delivery is instrumental in upgrading some of the UK’s most critical distribution networks.

“Our technical expertise and experience in delivering safe and efficient programmes of work and alternative energy solutions marks a further step in our strategy to offer a higher value, end-to-end service.”
