UK Power Networks to relocate electrical substation as part of Manchester Airport transformation program

UK Power Networks Services has signed a contract to provide power infrastructure services for Manchester Airport as part of its £1bn (US$1.4bn) transformation program.

The project requires UK Power Networks Services to build a new airfield substation and transfer critical electrical infrastructure from an existing substation located in the middle of a taxiway. The project will also include high- and low-voltage cabling and airfield groundlighting works.

Moving the substation will make way for a wider dual parallel taxiway, which will support the airport’s requirement to expand a number of taxiways and allow an increase in aircraft traffic and airport capacity. This project is part of the Manchester Airport Transformation Programme that will see an expansion to airport terminals, car parking, aircraft stands and air bridges.

Ian Smyth, director of UK Power Networks Services, said, “We are delighted to be selected by Manchester Airport Group as their delivery partner for this mission-critical project. This project will support Manchester Airport in providing an enhanced experience to its customers for many years to come.

“We will deliver a world-class engineering solution to ensure Manchester Airport continues to be the global gateway for residents and businesses in the north of England and Wales.”
