Major Milestone Achieved at Rotherhithe

Major Milestone achieved for the London South HV Power Upgrade Project at Rotherhithe.

Lowery have officially had the National Grid 33kV Compound signed off by both Network Rail and National Grid this morning, This is a great achievement for Lowery given the timescales to complete the works and the high standard of installation being commended by our client and National Grid.

The commissioning process now begins to reconfigure the Network Rail 33kV HV Network, which will be over the next 3 months.


"Many thanks for the hard work you and your teams have put into getting the initial handover of HVPU scheme to National Grid today. We have received the email below from our Client and I wanted to ensure that you were all recognised for the work you have undertaken. It has not been without its challenges and we also recognise the flexibility you have all shown to meet the end goal.

Please could you ensure this email is passed on to your full teams and hopefully the remainder of the scheme will continue to meet milestones."

Gareth White | Operations Manager | BAM Nuttall Ltd


"I would like to formally acknowledge the extraordinary effort that your team and contractors have put in over the last 9 days and nights, to ensure that we successfully achieved handback of the National Grid 33kV yard today

It is tribute to the BAM’s behaviours and collaboration with their contractors, client and stakeholders, that you managed to pull together the required design, procurement and execution in such a short period, successfully and safely.

This is still only one step towards to overall success and completion of the project, however it is still a step worthy of congratulations.

Many Thanks"
