Morgan Sindall wins Stoke Bardolph cabling contract

Morgan Sindall has been awarded a circa £14 million project to design, supply, install and commission 13 kilometres of 132kV double circuit cable through Nottingham.

The project is being undertaken for Western Power Distribution and will help to reinforce the supply to two existing major substations, Nottingham East and Nottingham North, as well as providing a new supply from the 132kV substation at Stoke Bardolph.

Morgan Sindall’s design business, Morgan Sindall Professional Services, has been appointed to carry out the electrical and civils design on the project. The design team has devised a solution which will minimise disruption to the general public whilst the works are taking place.

Jeff Lang, managing director of Utility Services at Morgan Sindall, says: “We are looking forward to commencing this project which is a key part of Western Power Distribution’s capital renewal programme. Our specialist extra high voltage teams and equipment ensures that we are best placed to undertake the complex nature of this work.”

The work will start on site in March 2012 and is due for completion in December 2013.

The project is part of the three-year fluid filled cable replacement programme framework to which Morgan Sindall was appointed in October 2010.
