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.
