National Grid rolls out T-pylon

National Grid has launched the T-pylon in Somerset representing the next generation of electricity connection in the UK. 

The pylon was selected through an international an international competition organised by the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Royal Institute of British Architects and National Grid.

It was designed by the Danish architects and engineers Bystrup and was selected from a field of 250 entries that was eventually whittled down to a shortlist of six.

The "radical arrangement of the electrical components" meant it could be lower than the equivalent steel lattice pylon and its simple design was judged to have less impact across landscapes, according to National Grid.
