ICP transfers

As a registered Independent Connection Provider (ICP), VolkerHighways is capable of carrying out the transfer of a Distribution Network Operator’s supply and is currently doing so on a large scale, on the UKPN (Eastern & London) and SSE networks. Due to the volumes being replaced we provide an efficient, cost effective service in the transfer of supplies to new columns. We provide the efficiencies of a “one-stop shop” solution without the need to wait for a third party to make the connection.

The services we carry out include:

  • Transfers
  • Disconnections
  • Reconnections
  • Extensions
  • New Service (unmetered)

To date, VolkerHighways has completed over 5,000 ICP connections.
