Our Engineering team is highly qualified with industry experience. We use the latest software and design techniques to ensure an efficient and effective design.

At SSE AUS, we take the time to understand your needs before designing and building the HV infrastructure to power your organisation. We have a strong heritage built on our commercial relationships with various clients from different disciplines and pride ourselves on our capacity to deliver from design to handover. Our team of directly employed HV engineers are authorised to operate with different voltage levels ranging from LV to HV. 

We provide design and build services to a variety of customers including utilities, hospitals, MOD, petrochemical and renewable generation sectors. The UK and Ireland have ageing HV/MV/LV networks and require upgrading to improve energy efficiency and supply resilience in order to meet our increasing demand for reliable energy.

At SSE AUS, we work with our customers to ensure their networks continue to operate safely, efficiently and minimise unplanned supply interruptions. We also undertake pre-designed construction projects through tendered or negotiated contracts.
