December 2, 2022
Linxon secures position on the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) Framework Agreements for turnkey delivery of high voltage and extra high voltage substations and associated systems in Scotland to support current and future project demand within the SSEN Transmission projects portfolio in the United Kingdom.
Linxon has entered a long-term relationship with SSEN Transmission (Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks). We have recently executed the Framework Agreements for FW Construction Transmission Substation GIS2 Multi-Site 0325 and FW Transmission Substation Construction Multi-Site 0326 to provide design, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of high voltage and extra high voltage Gas Insulated (GIS) substations and Air Insulated (AIS) substation works respectively along with associated systems in Scotland to support current and future project demand within SSEN Transmission. We are now in these two frameworks for an initial term of 5 years with a potential extension for another 2 years.
SSEN Transmission intend to apply a Delivery Partner Model which aims to promote long-term collaborative working with the supply chain in order to provide the most efficient solution to the Great Britain consumer and support the delivery of the SSEN Transmission RIIO T2 Business Plan commitments. This model explores longer commitment of projects, working with the supply chain to achieve cost certainty, Early Contractor involvement (ECI), Key Performance Indicators and Synergy Reviews.
“We are delighted to have been selected by SSEN Transmission to enter a long-term relationship and secure our place on these two exciting EPC AIS and GIS substation frameworks. With Linxon’s parentage, this award builds on many decades of collaboration and successful delivery between our organisations and I look forward to continuing this over the next 5 years and beyond with a firm focus upon achieving our shared Net Zero ambitions,” said Stefan Reisacher, CEO of Linxon.
“It demonstrates that our clients have confidence that our comprehensive offering is able to deliver enhanced value.”
