25 October 2006

Babcock International Group PLC ('Babcock'), the support services company, announces that its Networks business, in partnership with AMEC plc and Mott McDonald Ltd has been appointed preferred bidder by National Grid for the West Overhead Line and Cable Alliance.

The award is for the delivery of National Grid's capital works programme for overhead transmission lines and cable works in the West of England and throughout Wales. Babcock has extensive experience in alliance partnering, and through Eve - its power transmission division - it has recognised expertise in the field of overhead transmission line design and engineering.

The contract, worth around 100m a year to the Alliance for an initial period of five years, renewable for a further five years, is expected to be awarded in January 2007.

Peter Rogers, Chief Executive of Babcock, commented:

'This is a significant win for Babcock and its partners, reflecting Babcock's expertise in the technically sophisticated area of support services. The award represents an advance in the way of doing business to an alliance/partnership structure a concept with which we are familiar. This will allow long term planning for our business, which will deliver real efficiency benefits. We look forward to working with National Grid and our partners in the coming years.'
