The completion of the Beauly-Denny 400/275kV double-circuit overhead line (OHL) in 2015 has significantly increased the thermal capacity of the SSEN Transmission network to transfer power through the west corridor.

In addition to the connection of the 228MW Stronelairg windfarm in March 2018, it is expected that the power flowing through the Beauly-Denny double-circuit OHL will increase significantly in the next 10 years due to potential large generation connection in the region.  Power system studies have been conducted considering the current and expected generation and identified a requirement to manage the power flows to remain compliant with the Security and Quality of Supply Standard (SQSS).

Our network and system studies have shown that currently contracted generation will cause such a change, within the Tummel Bridge area, and will require reactive power support to be installed to maintain voltage levels under a number of different system operating scenarios.  To ensure safe, efficient and coordinated operation of our network, it is proposed that a new reactive power substation is connected at the proposed Kinardochy substation site.

On 11 February 2021 we submitted an application to Scottish Ministers for consent under Section 37 of the Electricity Act 1989 for the associated overhead line works required for the Kinardochy substation. We have been working closely with the Energy Consents Unit to ensure that, during the COVID-19 restrictions imposed by the UK and Scottish Governments, the application can be processed formally and in accordance with all relevant Regulations.

Please see below should you wish to view the documents contained within our Section 37 application in full.
