As a highly experienced building and infrastructure contractor, we have the core skills, people and supply chain partnerships to deliver bespoke solutions in the energy sector.

Working with our partners, operating equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and closely with our customers, we integrate design and construction capabilities – providing core building, civil engineering and utilities expertise. We also offer specialist in-house piling and ground engineering, fabrications and MEP (mechanical, electrical and public health engineering) services.

We make sure that what we do makes a clear contribution to society. That means working with integrity – fairly, transparently, safely and with a firm eye on leading the way in developing climate-smart net-zero solutions.

Combining our global expertise and collaborative local mindset, we find ways to design, plan and construct challenging projects that deliver cost-savings and meet the needs of customers and end-users.  

We have an impressive portfolio of energy projects, including in the fields of high voltage sub-stations, high voltage cable tunnels and both high pressure transmission and medium pressure distribution gas pipeline projects.

Global experience

Portsmouth Marine Terminal, Virgina, US

Our Skanska US team has been selected by the Virginia Port Authority to redevelop approximately 72 acres of the 287-acre Portsmouth Marine Terminal for use as an offshore wind staging port. The $223 million project includes site and structural demolition, earthworks, utilities works, ground improvements and upgrades to 1,500 feet of an existing 3,540-foot wharf. The redevelopment, the largest offshore wind energy project of its kind in the U.S., will support delivery of the state’s clean energy goals.

Drawing on our global expertise, we are positioned to support clean energy generation infrastructure projects, including windfarms, port upgrades, substations, hydrogen and carbon capture.
