Award of contract for grid connection cabling works at the Halewick Lane Battery Storage project

The Halewick Lane Battery Storage project proposes the re-development of the previously derelict North Sompting Waste Management Site into an income generating battery storage project. In an earlier phase of work the site was cleared of derelict buildings and prepared for installation of the new infrastructure.


The Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change delegated authority to the Director of Environment and Public Protection to commence procurement for and to award a grid connection cabling contract. The procurement process has now concluded, and the Director will be asked to award the contract for the cabling works to join the Halewick Lane site to the Worthing grid.
