Morgan Est secures £500 million E.ON framework

Morgan Sindall’s infrastructure services business Morgan Est has been selected by E.ON for a 10-year framework contract, covering E.ON’s Central Networks eastern region, with an estimated value of £500 million.

The programme of works will include capital asset replacement and reinforcement to overhead lines and underground cables up to 33kV. In addition, Morgan Est will carry out works to replace distribution plant and also remedial work programmes, which include building, civil engineering works and the inspection and maintenance of the distribution network up to 132kV.

Work will begin in April 2010.

“This is a very important win for our infrastructure services division, building on the strong relationship we have developed with E.ON over the past decade,” says Paul Smith, chief executive of Morgan Sindall plc. “We see a number of opportunities in the energy sector and our position within this market leaves us well placed to benefit from this trend.”
