Amey wins HS2 substation deal

Amey has landed a contract to build new substations to support construction of HS2’s central section.

The contractor won the deal to design and construct two temporary substations to provide power for the Chiltern Tunnel package.

The first substation will connect to the Scottish and Southern Electricity network and drop voltage levels from 132 kV to 33 kV to provide power for delivery teams working on the tunnel.

The second substation will drop voltage from 33 kV to 11 kV to power the tunnelling equipment needed for the 15.8 km-long Chiltern Tunnel.

Work on the tunnel is now not expected to start until at least June next year, after it was revealed that HS2 had pushed back the start of its civils work by seven months.

Amey’s parent group Ferrovial is currently one of the enabling works contractors for the central section of the line as part of the Fusion JV alongside Morgan Sindall and Bam Nuttall.

Ferrovial is also bidding for HS2’s London station contracts alongside Bam Nuttall and US firm Fluor.
