SSEN Transmission is to begin work on a new £17 million warehouse in Dundee by the summer after the plans for the 7,817 sqm facility were approved by councillors.

Part of the firm’s drive to reach net zero emissions, the building will be located at Claverhouse East Industrial Estate in the north of the city, accessed via Jack Martin Way.

A number of conditions have been attached to the plans, including upgrades to the small roundabout leading to the 9.34-acre site.

Planning officers believe improvements are necessary because there will be increased traffic, including four inbound and four outbound HGV trips per day.

Transformers weighing 225 tonnes will also be delivered to and stored at the warehouse on occasion.

SSEN Transmission said it is delighted the operations warehouse has been approved.

A spokesperson added: “We expect that a small number of jobs will be created at our future new operations facility in the area, and follows on from our continuing wider growth as a business across the north of Scotland which in the past year has seen 400 new green jobs created across our network area.

“Construction of the warehouse will also support local jobs and the local economy.

“It is an exciting time for SSEN Transmission as we continue to expand across the north of Scotland, building an electricity transmission network to help tackle the climate emergency by connecting and transporting Scotland’s vast renewable resources to where it is needed most.”

The expected completion date of the warehouse is summer 2025.
