BTS WINS 12 YEAR CONTRACT TO CUT TREES
DNO UK Power Networks awards tree management contract to BTS Group
BTS Group, a leading provider of utility arboriculture in the UK has been awarded a vegetation management contract by electricity distributor, UK Power Networks.
The new contract requires BTS to clear and maintain trees and vegetation wherever they grow close to the power network. This prevents trees from becoming a cause of power cuts and ensures the continuing safety of the public.
BTS has been a contractor to UK Power Networks for more than 20 years. The new contract is for a term of up to 12 years.
Hal McCallum, BTS Managing Director, said “We’re excited to be selected to continue to represent UK Power Networks in carrying out this important work. It’s great to see our commitment to safety, quality and customer service is recognised by the award of the new contract.”
BTS, which works throughout the East, North East, Scotland and South of England, manages its operations from a headquarters in Needham Market, Suffolk.
UK Power Networks owns the electricity lines and cables across London, the South East and East of England that enable electricity to be supplied to homes and businesses throughout those regions.
In addition to vegetation works, BTS maintains, repairs and constructs overhead network for UK Power Networks. Where possible, the tree, vegetation and overhead line work is carried out together to reduce disruption to customers.
