Hochtief To Deliver Power Supply Tunnel Project in Wales for 240 Million Euros

Hochtief UK has been awarded a 207 million British pound (240 million euros) power supply tunnel project by National Grid in Wales. The project is part of the Visual Impact Provision project in the Snowdonia National Park near Porthmadog in the north of the country.

Scheduled to start in early 2022, this seven-year project will see the construction of two shafts and a 3.4 km tunnel to carry electricity under the Dwyryd Estuary. The project has been developed to reduce the visual impact of National Grid’s overhead line across the estuary.

Hochtief UK’s Managing Director Lawrence Jackson said: “We are delighted to contribute with our long-standing expertise in tunnelling works to conserve and enhance the natural beauty and environmental heritage of Snowdonia”.

This is Hochtief’s second tunnelling project for National Grid. The Group is currently in joint venture for the delivery of the 32 km of tunnels for the supply of electricity in London.
