SSE Energy Solutions (SSEES) have been appointed by developer, St James Securities (SJS), to deliver site wide electricity infrastructure for the £200m Becketwell regeneration scheme in Derby.

This exciting and vibrant development will deliver a comprehensive new urban quarter in the heart of the city. In addition to hundreds of new homes, the development will also deliver a range of business, retail, F&B and leisure units including a state-of-the-art 3,500-capacity performance venue and multi-storey car park, all centred around a new public realm.

SSEES will design and build the high and low voltage infrastructure for all residential, commercial and electric vehicle charging connections. Michael Robertson, Sector Director commented: “We are proud to be building infrastructure that supports the transition to ‘net zero’ carbon and paving the way to enable the electrification of heat and transport.”

“We are delighted to be collaborating with SJS and wider project stakeholders on this exciting new development,” explains Noel Powell, Head of Regeneration and Development. SJS have successfully delivered similar award-winning developments in other cities and this complements SSEES’s commitment to work in partnership with developers in the Regeneration and Development sector to bring these projects to life.

“SSEES have a wealth of experience in energy asset development & utility infrastructure projects. Using smart technologies and working in partnership with our clients, we deliver energy infrastructure solutions, complemented by long-term operation and management across the UK and Ireland in both the public and private sectors. We are committed to delivering infrastructure fit for our customers’ and end users’ future needs.”

Dan Murray, Construction Director at SJS added:

“We are committed to sustainability and are delighted to be working with SSEES to deliver a site wide electricity infrastructure throughout the Becketwell scheme, which is a key regeneration project for the City of Derby.
