UK Power Networks are putting together an electricity pole replacement programme to replace an increased number of electricity poles going forwards into RIIO-ED2.
The key objectives will be to identify a suitable set of materials and manufacturing processes which can meet the standards and specifications for an electricity pole. This will then be assessed against the forecast future ‘whole life’ cost to understand whether there is a business case for further investment into another phase of the project. It should be noted that the stages are linear, and can be halted should it be determined that the business case is no longer viable.
