Stormport Professional Services awarded UK Power Networks contract





Stormport Professional Services continues to build on the long established, trusted relationship with UK Power Networks through the award of a six-year Framework agreement for Distribution Capital Delivery Services in the East of England.

Established in 2009 and based in Ely, Cambridgeshire, Stormport Professional Services is an independent electrical engineering/connections business providing expertise to maintain and improve electricity distribution networks across the UK.

UK Power Networks distributes approximately 27% of the UK’s electricity, serving more than eight million customers in London, the South East and East of England. They are responsible for over 135,000 substations and 170,000 km of overhead lines and underground cable network.

The Distribution Capital Delivery Services contract awarded to Stormport Professional Services will comprise the replacement of assets across the UK Power Networks’ Eastern area, including cables and substations. The contract also includes placing overhead lines underground. There is also a very strong commitment to support UK Power Networks restoring supplies to customers in the event of extreme weather conditions. The contract win will result in Stormport Professional Services expanding facilities, with new depots being added near Bury St Edmunds, Chelmsford and Peterborough. A significant number of new jobs will be created at the company.

Steve Wright, Managing Director at Stormport Professional Services said: “We are absolutely delighted to be awarded the contract with UK Power Networks after a fiercely competitive nine-month tender process.

“The new contract builds on the strong working relationship between UK Power Networks and Stormport Professional Services, developed over the past seven years. Understanding UK Power Networks’ drivers has allowed us to align our business to provide a customer focussed, flexible and technically proficient model to deliver the contract. During this time, we have demonstrated to UK Power Networks our excellent record in the safe delivery of services.

“In addition, we have proved to be a reliable contractor, consistently delivering a range of complex projects to a high level of quality and will continue to use directly employed staff (including all electrical trades, civil works, Hot Glove/Live Line and senior authorised engineers) to cover the entire work scope of this contract.”
