Overhead Lines Staff thanked by Scottish First Minister

Last week Duttons sent overhead line teams from our base in Cheshire to Scotland to help maintain and repaired the substantial damage caused to Scottish Power’s network by the recent high winds.

Our teams efforts have been recognised in a letter from Scottish First Minister John Sweeney in which he praised their “tremendous effort and commitment throughout the severe weather events we have experienced” and went on to say “In particular I would wish to thank those men and women on the front line, who have been exposed to the extreme and widely varied weather conditions, yet have battled through to ensure that our public continue to receive the essential services that you provide.”

Many are often unaware that whilst sheltering inside from the worst of weather conditions our overhead line teams are outside and working in isolated areas to repair the power the network. It is appreciated that their efforts are recognised.
