Scottish Hydro Electric Power Distribution (SHEPD, the Authority) intends to award framework agreements to contractors who have the necessary capability, capacity, and expertise to Design & Build Underground Cabling, Substation & OHL Schemes within the SHEPD regions as detailed within the procurement documents.
Action to address the climate emergency is increasing in priority and pace and with aggressive pathways now set to deliver a net zero energy system by 2035, SHEPD must ensure that the electricity networks are an enabler for a smart, equitable transition to net zero, rather than a constraint. The recent RIIO ED2 settlement, acknowledges the need for investment the networks and reconciles this with ensuring efficiency and affordability for all.
This significant programme of work within CAPEX & Connections amalgamates several scopes of work that SHEPD has traditionally delivered under separate contractual arrangements, including but not limited to substation, overhead line, cabling, civil works, design, associated services and works.

We are seeking long-term strategic partners to deliver our ambitious RIIO-ED2 Business Plan, play a significant role in our transition to net-zero and deliver great outcomes for our customers by driving efficiency through innovation, development of new technology and products, development of skills and supporting the growth of a locally sourced skilled workforce within our sector. This strategy is underpinned by the intention to award frameworks based on the geographical lotting (as set out in the procurement documents), removing the need for mini competition, to provide commitment to our delivery partners to facilitate growth. An initial view of our work bank is available as part of the PQQ pack.
Given the considerable growth within SHEPD it is the intention of this tender to enhance our supply chain and engage with contractors that can commit to our ambition who will collaborate with us in our delivery of the RIIO-ED2 Business plan and beyond.
