On the one-year anniversary of the Government’s Plan for Jobs, HS2 Ltd has announced that the project has reached another major milestone in its bid to build a lasting legacy of skills and education in the UK.
HS2 Minister Andrew Stephenson is hosting an online event for small and medium sized businesses in the South West to demonstrate just how simple it is to register an interest in joining HS2’s supply chain.
UK first as eco-friendly Hydro-treated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuelled piling rig trialled on HS2 construction site in London.
One of many green innovations on sites across the project, including hybrid and fully electric machinery, battery powered lighting, hydrogen power units as a replacement for diesel power generation, EFC concrete and solar energy - all cutting carbon emissions and improving air quality.
HS2 this week launched ‘Cecilia’ - the second of two enormous 2,000 tonne tunnelling machines that will excavate the ten mile long tunnels beneath the Chiltern hills just outside London. The first machine – ‘Florence’ – was launched just over a month ago.
