​Counties Energy commenced a programme to upgrade their end-of-life radio network, providing remote field device communication back to the SCADA master control.

The three year programme would cover the digital microwave backbone upgrade, ten civil upgrades for the existing repeater locations, three repeater building upgrades, procurement, installation and commissioning of the new digital links. The project also included commissioning a new UHF system and site additions on the existing Digital VHF network. The project is targeting completion by 2024.
