In lieu of being able to hold face to face public consultations in the local area, we are hosting a virtual consultation exhibition to provide greater detail about this project.
The virtual consultation event has been designed to be fully interactive, allowing for presentation of key project information and plans, as well as providing an opportunity to ask questions about the project.
Visitors will be able to engage directly with the project team, via a live chat function, where they can ask any questions they might have about the project and share their feedback on the current proposals.
Please click below to access our virtual consultation. This portal will host all of the information pertinent to the public consultation, however members of the project team will be available for a live instant messaging session via this portal on:
Outwith this session, any questions relating to our proposals can be put to the project team via the Community Liaison Manager who would be happy to answer any queries.
We would also encourage interested local stakeholders and community members to ensure that they submit their feedback to the initial proposals, to allow views to be taken in to consideration as the project undergoes further refinement
The Beauly 132kV Reinforcement project is required to enable the connection of the Loch Luichart Extension II windfarm. Infinergy signed a connection offer for 36MW of generation in 2019, and SHE Transmission are now looking to replace aging assets at Beauly 132kV substation to enable this connection to the grid.
The project will involve the following elements:
This project will deliver more operational flexibility and improve network security at Beauly 132kV substation.
Throughout the life of our projects, we aim to work positively with local communities and keep people informed about what we are doing. This is particularly important when we are developing a project and we want to understand what local people think about our plans.
We endeavour to take the time to discuss our proposals with local community councils and the wider affected community and to carry out engagement at key stages, listening to feedback before finalising project plans.
Whilst we are unable to hold public consultation events or meetings at this time, we will be seeking to engage with the local community through other means, to both introduce the project and ensure that local residents have the opportunity to provide feedback at an early stage in the development.
