Over 17 months, our project team and our principal contractor Morgan Sindall Infrastructure, worked in the Cairngorm National Park laying new underground cable to replace a section of overhead line running from Docharn Woods to Nethy Bridge. With all the cables laid, the team set about removing the 12km of overhead line and dismantling 46 transmission towers.

The £31.9M project, has been funded as part of a £500M scheme administered by the energy regulator, Ofgem. The scheme allows the three GB electricity transmission owners to apply for funding to mitigate the impact of historic electricity infrastructure in National Parks and National Scenic Areas.
