SSEN to deliver £10mn network resilience boost in Aberdeen

Aberdeen and its surrounding areas are set to gain a more resilient electricity network through a multimillion-pound investment by Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN).

Announced on 22 August, the £10mn investment programme will see new equipment installed, as well as new devices to restore power if in the event of power cuts over the next two years.

The network operator is also investing £850,000 to install automated equipment in 25 secondary substations, complementing its main substation investment programme and making Aberdeen’s electricity network smarter.

Michael Hilferty, Head of Region for North Caledonia at SSEN, said: “This programme of investment across Aberdeen will ensure local communities continue to receive the power they need, both now and in the future.”
