Network Plus have been awarded a contract to install 10km of underground electricity cables by Electricity North West.
The award forms part of Electricity North West’s £2m investment scheme in Carlisle, Cumbria and is vital to its commitment to lead the North West to net zero. The installation of the additional electricity cables will expand the network and its capacity across the region, enabling it to cope with increasing demand and meet the evolving need for new electricity infrastructure such as charging points for electric vehicles.
Network Plus engineers will spend 20 weeks safely installing the cables from near to Kingmoor Park, progressing along Parkhouse Road towards Todhills Services and alongside the M6 motorway before finishing in Westlinton. The team will ensure work is planned to have minimum impact on the local community and businesses as they progress through busy commercial and commuter areas, as well smaller villages and across rugged terrain.
Dan Holland Joint Chief Executive of Network Plus said,
“It is fantastic to expand our work with a long-term, valued client such as Electricity North West. As we ourselves progress our own net zero ambitions, it is great to see a team of our engineers work across Cumbria to help expand the network capacity and meet the increasing demand for electricity as we all turn towards a greener future,”
