Keltbray lands £140m in energy infrastructure contracts

Keltbray has secured a range of contracts totalling around £140m to deliver critical UK energy infrastructure.

The jobs include a multi-year distribution framework for UK Power Networks to refurbish and replace infrastructure in the eastern region. Keltbray has also bagged multi-year framework contracts for Northern Ireland Electricity Networks and ScottishPower.

Other work will include designing and building two battery energy storage sites for Harmony Energy in Yorkshire and Teesside, and a structural steel package for the Lostock Sustainable Energy Plant in Cheshire.

The announcement aligns with Keltway’s strategic focus on critical infrastructure markets. In November, the firm bought Idec Group, a high-voltage-power engineering business, saying this would help accelerate its growth in this field of work.

Mike Snee, managing director of Keltbray’s energy business, said: “Our technical expertise and experience in delivering safe and efficient programmes of work and alternative energy solutions marks a further step in our strategy to offer a higher value, end-to-end service.”

Keltbray chief executive Darren James added: “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.”
