THE COMPANY developing the network to connect a number of planned wind farms to the Kergord converter station is reminding people that its Shetland consultation is open for feedback until 25 June.

SSEN Transmission hosted virtual consultation events at the start of the month to present plans to provide connections for three projects; the Energy Isles and Beaw Field wind farms in Yell, and Mossy Hill wind farm located west of Lerwick.

Project manager Steven McMillan said: “We would like to thank everyone who provided their feedback during our consultation events, these comments will be essential in the next stage of the project’s development.

“As a responsible developer, we are keen to continue to work closely with the local community to identify onshore and offshore routes for these new connections.

“So, we encourage anyone who might be interested in our proposals to visit the webpage, to view our plans and share their feedback.”

SSEN Transmission said anyone interested in finding out more, but experiencing problems with access, should contact community liaison manager Sharon Powell at Sharon.powell@sse.com
