An end to Clynder power outages?
ScottishPower Energy Networks Invests £1.2million to Upgrade Electricity Network on the Roseneath peninsula
ScottishPower engineers will this month start a £1.2 million project to modernise the electricity network in the Clynder area. The work is designed to improve the reliability of power supplies by undergrounding strategic sections of cable, and refurbishing the remaining overhead network from Garelochhead. This work is part of ScottishPower’s large network investment programme that will improve the reliability of electricity supplies on the peninsula and reduce the inconvenience that can be caused by faults.
The full project will take until the end of 2012 to complete and will consist of three phases.
The first phase of the project will see the undergrounding of the overhead network in Clynder and take approximately six months to complete, with the second and third phases programmed to commence during the summer of 2012.
David Climie, Glasgow & Clyde North Zone Manager at ScottishPower, said: “We have been working very closely with Argyll and Bute Council to plan our work in advance and to minimise disruption.
“We would like to thank the residents of Clynder in advance for their patience while we carry out this work. Although there will be some disruption, this project will ensure a robust and reliable electricity network for many years to come.”
