The North East transmission network has triggered the need for a new Peterhead substation, 400kV.
Balfour Beatty is to develop a 400Kv Substation near the existing Peterhead 275KV substation.
The substation will be developed to operate at 400Kv.
Balfour Beatty has been awarded a £47.5 million contract to design and build a new 400 kilovolt (kV) substation in Peterhead on behalf of SSEN Transmission.
Balfour Beatty will now commence the construction of the large 25,625 square metre substation as well as all associated cabling and overhead line works, to ensure the continued safe supply of power to the North East of Scotland.
However, there will be electrical interconnectivity to the existing 275Kv substation via two new super grid transformers (SGT) The full scope of the project is to design and implement a 400/275Kv substation, including a fourteen bay 400GIS busbar. Install 2 no.
SGTs with weather enclosures. 2 no substation HV cable circuits to connect to the existing Peterhead substation 275KV AIS bays currently occupied by two overhead lines VH and VX1.
1 no Substation control building and associated infrastructure. Exploration of an alternative, approved Technologies that reduce and /or elimate the use of Sulphur Hexa-Fluride (SF6) within the GIS and /or GIB
Because of the network analysis and with a rise in contracted generation within the North East Area, there is an increased requirement for SHET to reinforce the network at Peterhead through the provision of a 275/400kV Electricity substation.
