WCN Editorial Team 22 Nov 2016 EUROPE ENERGY & UTILITIES

UK-based construction firm Costain has won a £113M contract from National Grid to enhance its Peterborough and Huntingdon compressor stations.


The contract is part of National Grid’s Emissions Reduction Project and will be completed in 2021.

Upon completion of the front end engineering design (FEED) project, Costain will now undertake the detailed design, decommissioning, build and re-commissioning of the two compressor stations.

Both compressor stations are set to meet the Industrial Emissions Directive and Pollution Prevention and Control standards.

“The project will also increase system resilience and reduce overall risk on the National Transmission System by replacing aging assets with modern, efficient equipment,” Costain said in a statement.

Costain CEO Andrew Wyllie said: "This is another example of Costain’s strategy in action.

"From design and delivery to programme management, we are providing a full range of engineering solutions to National Grid to help them meet national needs by providing a secure and sustainable energy supply.”
