McGowan awarded new cabling contracts worth £7.2m
McGowan Environmental Engineering has been awarded contracts worth £7.2 million by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks Distribution (SSEN) to deliver 81-kilometres 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.
A spokesperson for McGowan said: “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.
