About Us

What we do

We provide specialist services to investors in high voltage electricity assets covering technical and commercial assurance, and development, construction and operations management.

Although we cover all forms of electricity transmission and distribution, we are particularly active in the transmission of offshore renewable energy and the development of international electricity interconnectors.

Working with investor partners, we develop, procure, construct, own and operate transmission assets. In particular, we work through our joint venture company Transmission Capital Partners to acquire and manage offshore wind farm connections under the UK’s Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) regime.

Profits generated in the business are reinvested into the business to provide the financial capacity to grow the team and the number, scope and scale of projects in development.

Our Mission

We facilitate confident investment in complex infrastructure by providing best-in-class sector knowledge and experience to ensure that investments can be made with a complete understanding of the investment risks.

We do this for ourselves and for others as we invest both our own capital and we seek to facilitate investment by others who rely on our knowledge and experience. We have a proven track record in delivering target investment yield and return.

We bring an entrepreneurial development mentality, strong management discipline and a thorough understanding of the electricity transmission sector. Our skill set combines technical, procurement, commercial, financial and regulatory disciplines to provide a complete understanding and ability to manage any sector risk.

Our Values

Integrity – we conduct business with the highest standards of integrity, for example in supporting industry dialogue with a fair, honest and transparent approach.

Determination – we consistently strive to excel in our business in order to create value for us, our partners and clients.

Reliability – our reputation is built on our in-depth experience of the electricity industry and our solid track record.

Responsiveness – we are committed to always meeting or exceeding our partners’ and clients’ expectations in order to build long-lasting trust-based relationships.

Development

We can lead the whole infrastructure development process, or provide development services on specific aspects only.

Our experience in the sector allows us to correctly identify potential project sites, and to manage grid connection, property rights acquisition, planning and environmental, engineering and constructability issues.

We also assess project economics and investability, including devising detailed project financial models that show whether equity and debt investor requirements will be met.

Operations Management

We are the largest provider of operations management and high voltage services in GB offshore with more than 10 years of Offshore Transmission Owner (OFTO) operations management experience across a growing portfolio of offshore grid connections.

We offer our robust asset management framework and best in class assurance expertise to deliver competitive cost effective operations and maintenance solutions to ensure sites operate safely and efficiently.

We proactively manage technical and operational challenges to create value to investors as confirmed by our track of records including our industry leading asset availability performance (99.88%).
