In the United Kingdom, Omexom UK & Rol (subsidiary of VINCI Energies) and Taylor Woodrow (subsidiary of VINCI Construction) created the company OTW which has just been designated partner company 1 of the “Great Grid Partnership” program . In this context, it may be awarded design-build contracts aimed at connecting new offshore wind farms (50 GW) to the British electricity network.

“Great Grid Partnership” consists of carrying out a series of significant works to upgrade electricity transmission infrastructure ( onshore ) by 2030. It is part of a national plan – worth a total of 9 billion pounds (10.4 billion euros), also including the construction of new electricity infrastructure after 2030 – which will mobilize more than 300,000 people at peak activity in 2027.

VINCI will thus contribute to limiting the United Kingdom’s dependence on fossil fuels. The country anticipates a 50% increase in its energy needs by 2035 and a doubling by 2050. In 7 years, the country intends to build six times more electrical transmission infrastructure than in the last 30 years.

1 Six other companies were also selected.

Because its vision of success is global, VINCI is committed to the environmental, social and societal performance of its activities. Because its achievements are of public utility, VINCI considers listening and dialogue with all stakeholders in its projects as a necessary condition for carrying out its activities. VINCI’s ambition is to create long-term value for its customers, its shareholders, its employees, its partners and for society in general.
