SSEN to replace transformer on Outer Hebridean island
The Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks has begun the process of replacing a transformer on the island of South Uist—the second-largest island in the Outer Hebrides.
The project is part of a larger program to upgrade the electricity network in the Western Isles of Scotland. The program has a total cost of U.S. $930,000 (£730,000).
Work has just started on replacing the old transformer with the energization of the new transformer to be completed by August.
