Kincardine to Longannet 275kV overhead line diversion

SP Energy Networks Staff MemberSP Energy Networks has applied to the Scottish Ministers for consent under Section 37 of the Electricity Act 1989 to divert the existing 275kV overhead line known as ‘YG Route’ which runs from Kincardine to Longannet Power Station.

The proposed diversion is required to facilitate the construction of a consented housing development to the south east of Kincardine, close to Inch Farm. The diversion is approximately one kilometre in length and will involve the construction of three new towers, followed by the removal of three existing towers to make way for the new housing development.
