Project Highlights

The Drax—Eggborough cct2 NICAP works was successfully completed on time and the circuit returned to service on Friday 25th June 2010.
Like all NICAP works we encountered a few curved balls but with strength and commitment the Project Team rose to the challenge. Drax—Eggborough had a higher profile than normal due to its short lead and performance markers.
Based on the performance of the Team throughout the Project’s lifecycle we could not have asked for a better demonstration of why SES, should be awarded and deliver future NICAP Projects

The work was completed on time and in a safe and efficient manner by all parties concerned and the project was followed at all times—Well done Team.
