The Crossaig substation is required as part of the Kintyre to Hunterston Connection project.
The transmission network was original designed to serve rural communities. The increase in requests to connect renewable generation to this network requires an upgrade, including a new substation.
BT Bell provided civil engineering design services including formation of the substation platform; foundations for air insulated switchgear and a gas insulated switchgear building; drainage, roads, ducting, services. All of our services were delivered effectively and to the agreed programme timescale.
