Linxon has secured a prestigious framework agreement for the works associated with the Design and Build of High Voltage Electrical Substations for ESB in the Republic of Ireland, which runs from 2022 to 2025 with optional extension until 2029.

Linxon has won its second strategic long-term framework agreement for the Design and Build of high voltage substations for ESB (Electricity Supply Board) in the Republic of Ireland, which runs from 2022 to 2025 with optional extension until 2029.

“We are delighted to have been selected by the ESB to enter into a long-term relationship and secure our place on this exciting Design and Build of HV substation framework. This is our 2nd major award in the Republic of Ireland, we will work in a collaborative way to deliver a successful framework between our organisations, and I look forward to continuing this over the next few years with a firm focus on achieving our shared Net Zero ambitions”, said Stefan Reisacher, CEO of Linxon.

This framework will involve Linxon providing its market-leading technical / equipment innovation, system integration and construction knowledge across ESB Networks’ electrical transmission infrastructure ranging from 132 kV to 400 kV whilst supporting both organisations’ drive towards Net Zero. The framework activities will range from small substation extensions and refurbishment to large-scale, innovative, new-build substation requirements. The proposed scope of works for the projects under this framework agreement will include, but not be limited to 400 kV / 220 kV / 110 kV / 38 kV voltage levels GIS and/or AIS switchgear, substation control system and protection systems, underground HV cable circuits and overhead lines depending on project requirements.

Linxon is building the infrastructure to power the world with carbon-free energy. We strive to minimise the carbon impact of our business activities by continually looking for supply options and methods of working which will significantly reduce carbon emissions – in design, procurement and construction.
