Baker Consultants

Baker Consultants appointed Ecology Consultancy to Scottish Power Energy Networks (SPEN)

Baker Consultants’ has been appointed as an Ecology Consultancy to Scottish Power Energy Networks (SPEN) covering areas of Central & Southern Scotland, Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and North Shropshire.

Scottish Power service over 3.5 million homes across their network, through a distribution network of over 30,000 substations and over 40,000km of overhead lines and 65,000 km of underground cables. This maintenance of this infrastructure often requires work in or around sensitive ecological habitats or species, some of which may have significant statutory protection, and it is this facet of work that Baker Consultants will be advising Scottish Power on.

Baker Consultants have been working on individual projects for SPEN in north Wales for the last couple of years, and we’re delighted to have been successful in acquiring this long-term framework contract and continuing that existing relationship. We are looking forward to the opportunity to work on more projects in Scotland – expanding the amount of our work in this geographical area, with its unique ecology, and different legislative and policy frameworks.
