Bringing together an experienced team of designers and engineers, UK Power Networks overcame technical challenges to successfully deliver a new spur tunnel for a major new electricity line that will enable new homes, workplaces and leisure destinations to be powered within London’s Nine Elms district including the iconic Battersea Power Station.

Working with principal contractor Clancy Docwra,and Joseph Gallagher Ltd and COWI, the complex project was constructed very close rail lines and existing utility equipment, and carefully designed to complete an underground reinforced concrete junction chamber.

James Belcher, senior project manager at UK Power Networks, said: “We are all absolutely delighted to have won the Best Infrastructure Award. This was a complex project and it’s testament to everyone’s hard work that we delivered it successfully and got it done safely.

“We’re also immensely proud of the role we have played in delivering the electricity infrastructure needed to rejuvenate a landmark building and the surrounding area.”
