INFRASTRUCTURE: McGowan Secures New £7.2m Cabling Contracts

27 October 2021

McGowan Environmental Engineering have been awarded contracts worth £7.2m by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) Distribution to deliver 81-kilometers of 33kV cabling at Burn of Whilk (Caithness) and Moy (near Inverness).

These projects will involve the installation of new single-circuit and triple-circuit underground cabling plus fibre-optic cable - including cross-bonding and intermediate earthing - across rural land.

We have recently made a considerable investment to secure new and innovative cabling equipment. This technology allows us to provide a more efficient and effective service, reducing time and cost for the client while also minimising the environmental impact across sensitive landscapes.

Works on the installation of the high-voltage underground cabling started at Burn of Whilk last month with the Moy project due to commence in the coming weeks.
