Our ICP solution

ICP network connections

As a national Independent Connection Provider (ICP), we understand that your new electricity connection needs to be delivered in a safe, reliable and cost-effective way.


We have a long track record throughout the UK of successfully meeting clients’ power requirements through the design and build of electrical infrastructure, from the point of connection to the local distribution network to their onsite infrastructure.

  • Provide a nominated Project Manager for every connection so you know someone is always on hand for progress updates and to make sure any questions are dealt with in a timely manner.
  • Work collaboratively with our clients to ensure delivery programmes are agreed, progress is regularly monitored and deadlines are met.
  • Support customers to develop their requirements, taking account of current needs and future aspirations, supporting business objectives and sustainability goals.
  • Apply industry best practice and integrate the latest in emerging technologies to develop connections solutions that encompass grid connection through to onsite infrastructure needs.
  • Work closely with the local DNO to ensure seamless delivery of connections on time, every time.

Are you a Data Centre Owner or Operator?

As the UK’s data centre market continues to grow and mature, the challenge to meet the significant power demands and maintain resilience, while meeting sustainability pressures remains.

Data centre components require significant infrastructure to support the centre's hardware and software. These include power subsystems, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), ventilation, cooling systems, fire suppression, backup generators, and connections to external networks.

How we can help

We connect data centres to the electricity network and work closely with providers in the data industry to provide resilience and improve sustainability.

To facilitate the huge power demand of this, we work with clients to identify where on the local distribution or transmission networks they can obtain their electricity supply. This includes the design, build and commission of data centre supplies up to, and including, 132kv.

Are you a Developer?

Developers face many challenges as they plan a development from inception, manage the design, engage with relevant stakeholders and see the project through all stages, working with third parties, to completion.

How we can help

We connect new developments to the electricity network and work with our clients to identify the optimum solution to provide resilience and improve sustainability.

Delivering cost-effective and time-critical electricity connections, we continue to support developers to meet new and ambitious sustainability targets across many development types. This includes mixed use, warehouses, residential properties, industrial or commercial premises, hospitals and schools. We can also implement any improvements to local infrastructure including roads and transport links.

Case studies

Case Studies West One Leeds
West One Leeds

We developed the strategy to optimise the site’s existing electrical capacity and investigated the requirements for future electrical loads. We are working with the local DNO to alter the network and improve the on-site HV network.

Case Studies Telford Homes Gallions Point
Telford Homes Gallions Point

We designed and constructed a new HV network and established a new 1MVA substation to enable the connection of 267 new homes.

HM Prison Adobestock 431709022
