  • Mossbank-Yell Cable Replacement

  • Project overview


    Following submission of an application to Marine Scotland in April 2018, and subsequent granting of a marine licence, a replacement submarine electricity cable running between Mossbank and Yell was installed in Spring 2019.


    Installation of the cable was carried out by Global Marine on behalf of SSEN and went smoothly thanks to the relatively calm weather. Once the cable had been pulled in at each shore end, they were laid across the surface of the seabed, with rock filter bags or concrete mattresses placed on the cables to provide stability.
    The new 33kV cable was energised in Summer 2019 and will secure power supplies to Yell for years to come.
