Transmission and distribution

We provide help across the electrical engineering distribution and transmission sector, including to DNOs and regulators.

Electrical engineering consultancy is a core Frazer-Nash capability, and we have many years' experience of providing support in heavy electrical engineering distribution and transmission across a variety of sectors.

We provide technical services to Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) in both the UK and Australia. Our work with the regulatory bodies in the power, transmission and distribution sector enables us to influence the UK transmission and distribution network.

Working closely with our clients, we can provide support across the entire project life cycle, from initial concept through to detailed design and implementation. Our range of services deliver real value, whether you are looking for a single system's simulation and analysis, through to provision of a full-service Lender's or Owner's engineer role.
