Marine cable installation talk-in
Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) is hosting two consultation events on Arran next week to seek feedback on its proposals to replace the existing submarine cable which connects Arran to Carradale.
The existing cable, which runs from Balliekine to Port Crannaich in Carradale, is naturally coming to the end of its operational life and now needs to be replaced to enable the continued and reliable electricity supply to the homes and businesses that it serves.
The open-door events are being hosted in both Arran and Carradale next week by the SSEN project team to provide interested stakeholders with an opportunity to speak with the team and learn more about the project proposals, including the location of the new cable, the onshore landing points and installation methods being considered.
The pre-application consultation events will take place at the Auchrannie Hotel on Monday May 21, between 2pm and 6pm, and at the same location on Tuesday May 22, between 10am and 4pm.
