The leading services provider Amey has been awarded a four-year extension to the existing Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks’ (SSEN) joint venture with GE Power’s Grid Solutions business.

The project incorporates the civil and electrical design, build and commissioning of new 400kV, 275kV and 132kV substations in Scotland, which helps to reinforce SSEN’s existing network to enable load-related growth associated with various onshore and offshore renewable energy and subsea cable projects.
