Power transmission

We help our clients with all aspects of transmission engineering.

Since the 1920s, when the interconnection of the 132 kV grid system was pioneered in the UK, having a secure and reliable power transmission and distribution system has been more and more important. Today, power utilities face increasing commercial, regulatory and environmental pressures imposed by a competitive energy market.
