Electrical Transmission and Distribution

Kirby design, engineer, construct and commission high-voltage (HV) and medium-voltage (MV) electrical transmission and distribution systems for end-user clients, utility organisations and the renewable sector.

We are the leading specialist T&D contractor with over 1.3GW of wind capacity successfully connected to the grid.

Clients such as Scottish Power, Energia, Element Power, Analog Devices and DELL depend on Kirby to undertake this critical infrastructure work safely whilst minimising operational interruptions. Our clients trust Kirby because of the quality of our specialist T&D personnel and our unrivalled capability to manage all aspects of project delivery from design through to grid-connection interface.

We work on infrastructure up to 400kV, AIS and GIS configurations, and manage all associated civils/structural and building works including overhead line (OHL) works, trenching, sub-station build and switchyards.

Importantly, we have the local resources needed to support the maintenance and management of HV/MV electrical infrastructure, ensuring operational continuity and supporting our clients’ core business activity.

We are fully accredited with Lloyds NERS and Achilles UVDB; we are representatives of various country-specific Wind Energy Associations and regularly contribute to industry discussion papers as a leading T&D focused contractor.


What We Do

Kirby have been an excellent addition to our contractor base. From very early on in our relationship we received the acknowledgement, support, guidance and commitment from the senior management and directors within Kirby.

Kirby have established a considerable team of highly trained staff, and at their own expense, had these staff trained at the appropriate SPEN authorisations to permit and ensure safe and competent working on our network.

Kirby have and continue to deliver works on time and where possible on budget. At times, like all our contractors, Kirby have had to delay, reschedule and postpone works due to our network issues and (we) always found them to be very professional in their support and acknowledgement of these changes.
