Stormport Professional Services continues to build on the long-established, trusted relationship with UK Power Networks through the extension of its framework agreement for distribution capital delivery services in the East of England.
Established in 2009 and based in Ely, Cambridgeshire, Stormport Professional Services is an independent electrical engineering/connections business providing expertise to maintain and improve electricity distribution networks across the UK.
UK Power Networks distributes approximately 28% of the UK’s electricity, serving more than eight million customers in London, the South East and East of England. The company is responsible for over 130,000 substations and 188,000km of overhead lines and underground cable network.
The distribution capital delivery services contract was initially awarded to Stormport Professional Services on a two-year plus four-year plus two-year basis in November 2016. Following a review of performance over the first two years, UK Power Networks has issued Stormport the full four-year extension.
The framework covers the replacement of assets across UK Power Networks’ eastern area, including cables and substations. The contract also includes placing overhead lines underground. There is also a very strong commitment to support UK Power Networks with restoring supplies to customers in the event of extreme weather conditions.
Steve Wright, Managing Director at Stormport Professional Services said: “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded this contract extension with UK Power Networks after two years of hard work, delivering their requirements.
“The new contract builds on the strong working relationship between UK Power Networks and Stormport Professional Services, developed over the past nine years. Understanding UK Power Networks’ drivers has allowed us to align our business to provide a customer-focused, flexible and technically proficient model to deliver the contract. During this time, we have demonstrated to UK Power Networks our excellent record in the safe delivery of services.”
