Utility Installation Projects Limited provides professional and reliable engineering services to the electricity, telecoms, civil construction, renewable energy and water industry sectors.
Experts in the installation of LV, HV and EHV underground power distribution and transmission cables, with the successful delivery of many large and complex cable laying projects for high profile clients in our portfolio – we are very proud to have played a key role in the installation of power infrastructure for the new Wembley Stadium and the London Olympics 2012 site. Other notable projects where we have provided specialist assistance include EHV cable installation at Palm Island Resort, Dubai, United Arab Emirates in 2008 and the East West (Ireland – Wales) Interconnector Project in 2011.
Accredited under the Lloyds National Electricity Registration Scheme (NERS) up to 132kV, UIP offers a complete design, supply and install service for new LV, HV and EHV grid connections.
As well as on-shore cable installation works, UIP also have a proven track record in ‘beach-landing’ of submarine cables for offshore wind farm connections, working closely with diving and lay-barge operator partners.
We are able to provide engineering consultancy, project management services and specialist resources for utilities infrastructure projects, including telecoms, water and electricity connections projects. A professionally engineered route design can significantly reduce cable and pipeline installation costs. We therefore offer a full route-proving, feasibility and design service for cable and pipe installations, enabling our clients to establish the most cost effective route whilst mitigating risks associated with access, land owner consents, environmental and engineering difficulties.
Our teams have extensive experience in telecoms cable and duct installation, including major fibre optic network installation, such as the 186k Project, and we regularly install fibre optic pilot/control systems for monitoring, protection and control of power circuits.
Civil and site services engineering capability includes general groundworks (including bunds, formwork etc), structures and bases for fixed apparatus (switchgear, cable terminations etc), security installations (fencing, intruder alarms, CCTV etc
UIP’s policy of investment in continuous business improvement enables us to provide the very best specialist plant and equipment available. Much of this equipment, including drum trailers, winches and push-pull machines are of a bespoke design as we will not ‘make do’ with standard design if the complexities of a project call for innovative design.
Recognising the willingness and ability of the UIP team to react swiftly and effectively at short notice, we are often called upon by network owners/operators to safely undertake emergency electricity substation civil repair/cabling works, under challenging conditions.
Our management team is committed to continuous improvement in health and safety performance, constantly reviewing work management systems, introducing innovative new practices and implementing training for our teams.
