The control building construction has been completed and the electrical contractor is now well progressed with the installation of all of the various panels and cables that will enable control of the wind farm once complete.
SHETL have commenced the grid connection works. The underground cable and overhead line works are well advanced. We anticipate that they will start delivering and installing their equipment in their external switchyard at the substation next month.
On Wednesday 30th September 2020 our wind turbine supplier and their haulage contractor undertook a trial run of the delivery route from Inverness port down the A9 to the site entrance and all of the internal access track and turbine locations. We are pleased to say that everything went well and that we are now ready for delivery of the wind turbine components.
The first ship carrying wind turbine components is expected to dock in Inverness within a week or so.
