Stevenson Welcomes Major Investment in Macduff Substation

Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed major investment by the Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) in the north-east.

It comes as part of a £5million programme of investment in Moray and the north-east with more than 11,000 properties expected to benefit.

SSEN is investing £1.2million in the local substation powering Macduff by replacing transformers and switchgear with new, upgraded equipment.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“This investment will boost the resilience of the network and serve more than 6,500 properties in the local area.

“It will also help to allow for future growth in electricity demand. Some of this equipment was installed in the 1960s and has been due an upgrade so this next step is very welcome.

“I know this will benefit many people in the area, particularly with the demand caused by more people having to work from home and staying at home during the upcoming winter period.”

Michael Hilferty, Head of SSEN’s North Caledonia region, said:

“Our priority is to ensure a safe, secure and reliable supply of electricity for our customers, and this investment goes a long way to delivering on that commitment for thousands of existing homes and businesses, as well as those looking to connect to our network in the coming years.”

Disclosure: Stewart is a very small shareholder in SSE plc.
