The work, which was won under the Provision of Tower Painting and Maintenance Services framework agreement, is part of National Grid’s ongoing maintenance and refurbishment programme of their overhead line network in the UK.
Fountains, part of total facilities management provider OCS Group UK, provides environmental services such as vegetation management, estate and street cleaning, grounds maintenance and forestry services across mainland UK and the north eastern seaboard of the United States. Richard Linnell, Fountains’s operations director, said:
“I am delighted that we have been awarded our largest order for this type of work for National Grid and we continue to introduce new services. It demonstrates the breadth of our facilities management capability in the utilities sector.”
Fountains has also recently completed a £500,000 contract for National Grid to replace anti-climbing guards and circuit identification plates on electricity towers in the south of England.
