Underground Grid Connection Confirmed

Brockwell Energy are pleased to confirm plans for an underground grid connection at our Dalquhandy Wind Energy Project in South Lanarkshire. This follows a lengthy period of consultation with members of Coalburn Community Council and Councillor George Greenshields.

“As part of this consultation we listened to concerns raised locally about the proliferation of overhead power lines in the Coalburn area,” says Brockwell CFO Iain Cockburn. “As a result we have worked hard to come to a position with the transmission operator that allows our underground solution to be taken forward.

“Although the underground cable option will increase the connection cost for the scheme, this will minimise the visual impact of our green energy grid connection.”

Mr Cockburn added: “We look forward to continuing our engagement with the local community in Coalburn to fully explore other environmental improvements in the area, such as the enhancement of footpaths both on and off the Dalquhandy site.”

Work at the Dalquhandy Wind Energy Project site will now continue, with ground investigation works commencing this month.
