Overhead lines (OHLS) are the most recognisable aspects of the transmission network. The New Suite of Transmission Structures project will create a new breed of overhead line supports that are smaller, better for the environment and could save up to £174 million for customers before 2050.
The NeSTS project develops and demonstrates a new alternative to conventional supports. The project offers a fully validated suite of supports tested against a range of conditions representative of GB’s networks. The designs offer benefits through reduced foundations, civil requirements and improved stakeholder acceptance than traditional supports.
