Linxon wins order to deliver substations in London for National Grid
National Grid has awarded Linxon the substation package relating to its London Power Tunnels 2 project in the United Kingdom.
The contract is part of National Grid’s six-year, £1 billion project to rewire South London via 32 km of deep underground tunnels. To connect the underground cables to the Transmission and Distribution Networks, Linxon will design, supply, install and commission connection bays at two existing National Grid substation sites, undertake modification works at two further sites and construct a new 7 bay 400/132kV Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) substation at Bengeworth Road to reinforce power supplies to South East London.
As a key enabler for the London Power Tunnels 2 (LPT2) project, Linxon will join National Grid’s Project 13 Enterprise. The Enterprise model aims to boost certainty and productivity in delivery, improve whole asset life outcomes and support a more sustainable, innovative and highly skilled industry.
“We are delighted that National Grid has trusted Linxon to deliver such large scale and critical works. Our innovative approach to challenges and ability to harness new technology has shone through yet again” says Stefan Reisacher, Linxon CEO.
“Linxon is excited to collaborate with the National Grid team and join the LPT2 Project 13 Enterprise, bringing our expertise in AC grids, substation high voltage technology and construction, as we collectively seek to bring surety of power supply for future generations.”
