Keltbray bags £140m haul of energy infrastructure work

The deals cement Keltbray’s presence in the fast-growing energy and renewables infrastructure sector to support the UK’s energy security and net zero agendas, through the ongoing maintenance and decarbonisation of the UK’s electricity grid.

They include three framework deals with major power providers as well as two new battery storage facilities and the structural steel package for the boiler house on a energy from waste plant in Cheshire.

Darren James, chief executive officer at Keltbray, said: “These projects mark an important milestone in the delivery of our strategy to redefine the way sustainable development is delivered, where we see increasing demand for Keltbray’s integrated capabilities in critical infrastructure sectors like energy.”
