Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks will be holding their second public consultation event about the plans for the reinforcement works required at the Errochty switching station.
The public consultation will be held at the Kynachan Hall in Tummel Bridge on Wednesday 6th of July from 2pm until 7pm.
Speaking about the public consultation SSEN said “We would encourage members of the local community and all interested parties to attend the event.”
SSE Renewables are looking to increase their load capacity at Tummel Power Station, driving a connection modification application from our sister company SSEN Distribution, which requires an increase in the transformer capacity at Tummel Bridge.
It is proposed that a new site, adjacent to the existing Errochty 132kV substation, be developed to facilitate the installation of two new 90MVA 132/33kV transformers, along with appropriate 132kV and 33kV switchgear to create a new Grid Supply Point (GSP).
This new Errochty GSP will provide a 33kV connection point, to accommodate all generation and demand currently served by Tummel Bridge GSP, including the requested capacity increase for Tummel Bridge Hydro Power station.
