New lattice pylons in Avonmouth

Our contractor, Balfour Beatty, has completed building the new 400,000 volt lattice pylons in Avonmouth. 

Teams from our principal contractor, Balfour Beatty, have now completed the construction of the two new 76-metre pylons on the banks of the River Avon.

We are expected to finalise these by hanging the wires in early April 2024.

We will then work to test and commission the new lines in preparation for energisation at the end of the year.
