SSE seeks Xodus
Aberdeen outfit to provide employers representative services
Xodus Group will provide employers representative services to help SSE develop and improve its electrical networks.
The £1m plus contract is for three years with the option of a further two years. It will involve various development and construction activities across SSE’s portfolio.
This will include employers representative services in connection with: marine survey of proposed subsea cable routes and landfalls; subsea cable route development; cable installation, cable burial and cable protection operations; adherence to consent processes and environmental requirements.
The first project Xodus is involved in is SSE’s electricity transmission business, Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission and its Caithness/Moray HVDC reinforcement project.
Xodus global low carbon lead James Hunt said: “We are very pleased to be working alongside SSE to help them achieve their electrical network ambitions across Scotland.
“This agreement recognises our excellent offshore track record, our flexible and proactive approach, and highly knowledgeable team.
“Work is already underway and going well on the strategically important Caithness/Moray project that will provide secure electrical energy to a large population.”
