Bright outlook for SSE subsidiary

Scottish & Southern Energy has landed a contract to maintain thousands of street lamps, bollards and traffic signs for Knowsley council on Merseyside.

The 25-year deal has been awarded to the Perth utility's Tay Valley Lighting subsidiary under a private finance initiative. Some 70 per cent of the fixtures are set to be replaced during an initial four-year investment period. Colin Hood, chief operating officer of SSE, said: "SSE is well established as the UK's leading street lighting contractor and this contract will build on that."
