Welcome to April’s newsletter!

It’s been a busy month with our Spring Super Deals in full force, and lots of news within the construction industry. We have seen the ongoing financial struggles on both individuals and large companies as well as Ofgem releasing new rules on the forced installation of prepayment energy meters. Other big announcements this month include a new agreement signed between the UK and Netherlands, and two construction companies fined after a workplace incident sees a supervisor injured.




Deal Made For World’s Largest Power Line

The UK and the Netherlands have signed a deal for the world’s largest multi-use power line. The line will connect the Netherlands with Britain’s electricity grids to a Dutch offshore wind farm. The interconnector will be able to transmit 1.8 gigawatts of electricity which is enough to power roughly 1.6 million homes (that’s more than Manchester and Birmingham combined)! The new line will enable the UK to import electricity from the Netherlands in the event of a power outage. This agreement will improve the UK’s energy resilience which is currently heavily reliant on imported gas, making the UK currently vulnerable to price shocks and supply disruptions.

It is said to create 40,000 jobs, helping to boost the economy and employment within Britain and will bring a suggested £20 billion per year to the UK’s coastal regions. Not only will it help boost the economy, the agreement will help the UK to practice cleaner and cheaper energy methods. The new innovation and engineering will help to connect the two countries together and assist the UK’s plan to become net zero in the quickest and cheapest way.

124kg Panel Fall Sees Construction Companies Fined


Two construction companies have been fined after a lift supervisor was hospitalised with multiple injuries after being struck by a 124kg panel. The incident happened in 2020 when the lift supervisor used a tower crane to lift a structured insulated panel which hit some steelwork and fell onto him. He suffered multiple injuries including a fractured collarbone and shoulder blade, rib and ankle.

An investigation found that there were failures in planning, management and monitoring during the construction phase which led to one company being fined £1000 and ordered to pay £8,468.50 in court fees whilst the other was fined £12,000 and ordered to pay £45,000 in court costs. It was discovered that the planning failed on many parts including a lack of consideration for the proximity hazards and how the panels would be controlled during the lifting operation.

Both companies pleaded guilty to the charges and received the fines in court on 17th April 2023.
