Morgan Sindall has secured a place on National Grid’s onshore electricity cable framework. The initial term of the framework is four years, with a further option for a two year extension.

The framework is effective from June 2016 and will involve the design, construction and commissioning of 11kV to 400kV cable systems across National Grid’s network.
