Deliver supporting structures for revolutionary new generation of pylons.

Deliver supporting structures for revolutionary new generation of pylons.

The contract is for a test line of six T-Pylons at National Grid s Eakring Training Academy. They will be the first of their kind seen on the British landscape.

The new electricity pylon designs mark a departure from the traditional lattice structures that currently dot the British countryside. The new design is a single pole and has T shaped cross arms that hold the wires, otherwise known as conductors, in a diamond shape. The layout means the pylon can stand at a height of just 35m, which is 10m to 15m shorter than traditional lattice towers.

The designs for the new pylons were decided as part of an international competition organised by the Department of Energy &Climate Change, Royal Institute of British Architects and National Grid. The competition received 250 designs from across the world.
