Dutton Contractors Ltd Secure Underground Cables Framework. (Again)!

Dutton Contractors Ltd are pleased to announce that SP Energy Networks (SPEN) have today announced their provisional decision to award Dutton Contractors Ltd a four year Framework Agreement for the provision of underground cable services throughout the Mid Cheshire district.

Underground Cables FrameworkIn 2012 SPEN awarded Dutton’s a three year Framework Agreement to undertake half of the planned underground cable works throughout the Mid-Cheshire and Wirral districts. Other blue chip contractors were awarded the other half of the planned works and 100% of the reactive maintenance works.

The latest award is for the undertaking of 100% of the planned works and reactive fault works and represents recognition by SPEN that despite being a small company Dutton’s have the capability of delivering a service equal to or better than major blue chip contractors.

The Framework Agreement is due to commence in November 2015 and is valued at £14m over the four year period.

Company MD Richard Dutton said “We are delighted that SPEN have recognised the hard work put in by the Dutton’s team in maintaining the underground network over the last three years. We are looking forward to our continuing partnership with SP Energy Networks in maintaining the underground cable network.

We are particularly keen to demonstrate the efficiencies that will be achieved through the joint award of both the overhead lines and underground cables frameworks to Dutton’s. We believe that its success will become a model for future procurement in the electrical utility industry.
