Construction News revealed earlier this month that Skanska and Costain are battling it out for a National Grid contract to upgrade two of the client’s ageing gas compression stations.
It is understood the contract is worth around £90m and will be awarded in the coming months.
The winning contractor will replace the processing infrastructure at stations in Huntingdon and Peterborough stations.
The upgrades are part of a £26bn investment plan by National Grid to upgrade and develop its gas and electricity networks over the next five years.
