Troston Loch Wind Farm Connection

SP Energy Networks (SPEN) has been contracted by National Grid Electricity Transmission (NGET) to connect the proposed Troston Loch Wind Farm to the national grid. The proposed Troston Loch Wind Farm is located between the towns of St John’s Town of Dalry and Moniaive in Dumfries and Galloway. SP Energy Networks (SPEN) have a licence obligation to provide electricity generators with a connection to the electrical system in this area. In line with this, SPEN is proposing a grid connection between the planned Troston Loch substation and the proposed Glenshimmeroch collector substation (subject to a separate planning application), which will be connected to the grid by wood poles. The wood poles constructed will likely by H poles, rather than single poles, of between 11 and 18 m high, with a typical height of 13m, with typical spans of 90m.

SPEN has now carried out consultation on the proposals and the routeing work which has been undertaken to date for the Project. The Public Consultation Report is available below along with the Routing and Consultation Report.
