Objectives The NeSTS project develops and demonstrates a new alternative to conventional supports. The project offers a fully validated suite of supports tested against a range of conditions representative of GBs networks. The designs offer benefits through reduced foundations, civil requirements and improved stakeholder acceptance than traditional supports.
Abstract Overhead lines (OHLS) are the most recognisable aspects of the transmission network. The New Suite of Transmission Structures project will create a new breed of overhead line supports that are smaller, better for the environment and could save up to 174 million for customers before 2050.
