Project enables UK transition to sustainable energy systems of the future
DALLAS, May 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Jacobs (NYSE:J)/Morrison Energy Services Joint Venture – J1M – was awarded three contracts to support Pembroke, Lackenby and Bramley substation projects under energy utility National Grid's six-year Substations Engineering Procurement Construction Framework in the U.K.
As principal designer and contractor, the Jacobs/Morrison Energy Services Joint Venture is progressing detailed design and early works on the Pembroke substation project in Wales, to connect it to Ireland's Greenlink interconnector, one of Europe's most important energy infrastructure projects. Work includes the design, supply, installation and commissioning of a new 400kV gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) extension in the existing substation.
J1M is also supporting the connection of the Dogger Bank C windfarm on the east coast at Teesside into the transmission network at Lackenby substation. When complete this will connect an installed generation capacity of 1.2GW from Dogger Bank C, providing enough clean energy to power up to two million homes.
In Hampshire, J1M will deliver National Grid's new 25kV Holly Cross substation and connect it to the Bramley 400kV substation to supply Network Rail. J1M will also support in managing rural ecological requirements and local stakeholder engagement on all projects.
"With the U.K.'s ambition to quadruple energy from offshore wind by 2030, these projects play an essential role in expanding transmission capacity to the grid," said Jacobs People & Places Solutions Senior Vice President Europe and Digital Strategies Donald Morrison. "Our integrated team combines deep technical experience and major projects capability to drive agile solutions that challenge the norm and support a sustainable energy system for tomorrow."
