Substations contract awarded to support HS2 construction

United Kingdom: A British company Amey has been awarded a construction contract to provide power for a part of the construction of HS2, a planned high-speed railway in the UK which will directly link London, Birmingham, the East Midlands, Leeds and Manchester.

Amey has been contracted to design, install and construct two temporary transformer stations to support the delivery of the Chilterns Tunnels south portal, reports The Construction Index.

The first substation will connect to the Scottish & Southern Electricity Network (SSEN) power grid, while the second will distribute power to the tunnelling equipment required for the Chilterns Tunnels.
