Maintenance, renewals and enhancements of these assets represented a spend of approximately £1.5 billion within Control Period 5.

Commenting on his appointment, Jeff Davies said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead Andromeda. Since joining I have had the privilege of working with a dedicated team and alongside them I am looking forward to continuing to deliver high quality engineering solutions, through innovation, collaboration and efficiency.”
