The developers of Kype Muir Wind Farm have requested an underground cable connection to transport the electricity generated to our transmission network.
The Wind Farm is located several kilometres to the west of Lesmahagow and will be connected into the existing Coalburn Substation to the south of Lesmahagow. The nature of this connection will leave no lasting visual impact.
Work on the ground is planned to start in August 2017 with completion scheduled in the third quarter of 2018.
The connection route is approximately 16 km long and heads north as is leaves Coalburn Substation following the B7078 (Carlisle Road) before turning left onto Teiglum Road and then right onto Strathaven Road continuing on Lesmahagow Road out to Boghead where it turns left and follows the B7086 until it leaves the road heading south to the windfarm location.
