Elderslie Substation in an important asset in the SP Transmission Network which is located in Renfrewshire to the west of Glasgow.

Having been requested by Network Rail to increase capacity to the rail network as they move increasingly to electrification, activity has recently commenced at Elderslie Substation to instal a new 132 kV Transformer.

The project will involve an extension to the rear of the existing substation footprint (on SPENs own land) allowing the new transformer to be installed at a later stage as the project progresses over the coming months.
