Jacobs wins National Grid design and project services framework

Jacobs wins National Grid design and project services framework.

Jacobs has been awarded the Design and Project Services Framework with energy utility National Grid in the UK to support its full construction of the Electricity and Gas Transmission cycle. 

Through the new four-year framework, Jacobs will provide feasibility and survey works, front-end conceptual and detailed design, through to assurance, verification and commissioning services. 

The framework covers 10 Lots across all National Grid’s Transmission portfolio, including substations, overhead lines, onshore cables, high-voltage direct current (HVDC), protection control and cyber, gas, civils, multi-disciplinary design services, project services and design assurance.

“These services extend Jacobs’ 15-year relationship with National Grid and our continued commitment to challenge design rationale and drive programmatic and collaborative solutions to maximize project efficiencies,” said Jacobs People and Places Solutions senior vice president Europe and digital strategies, Donald Morrison.

“We will draw upon our transferable global experience to help develop, reinforce and accommodate new connections to the UK Electricity and Gas Transmission System.”

The Jacobs/Morrison Energy Services Joint Venture (J1M) is also providing National Grid with a range of services on its Electricity Transmission Engineering Procurement Construction Framework - Substations Lot.

From technical consultancy and engineering design, to infrastructure management services and operations and maintenance, Jacobs is providing extensive end-to-end solutions for offshore wind power development efforts — like Germany’s SuedLink Program — to help meet the increasing global demand for affordable clean energy. 

Jacobs is also looking at the feasibility of  the production and supply of green hydrogen for renewable energy company RWE's Pembroke Power Station.
