Plans for new UK pylon march on
Plans for a new “graceful” style of pylon in Britain are marching on says the National Grid after two prototypes of the T-pylon have been built in Denmark.
The T-pylon (artist’s impression, pictured) was picked out of 250 designs in a competition run by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Royal Institute of British Architects and National Grid last year.
It is now being offered for use in Somerset to transport electricity from the new nuclear reactor due at Hinkley Point and is likely to be built there in 2018.
Before this the National Grid will build a “test line” of T-pylons at its training centre in Eakring although a spokesperson couldn’t confirm when this would happen.
