Connections Management

Any extra-high voltage (EHV) or transmission connection is a significant project with  an inordinate number of moving parts and dependencies.  From drawing up the connection application through to final handover to the asset owner and project closure are hundreds of lines on our project management platform, with input from a range of specialists.

We have seen the results of people getting things wrong – we are often asked to pick up the pieces on others’ projects – so we know how high the costs can be.  When we are asked to manage the connection journey for a client, we know they are really buying peace of mind, and fewer sleepless nights.
