I accept the conditions.
SSEN is currently engaging
with a number of organisations, stakeholders and communities as we plan our programme
of works for 2021 and beyond.
This consultation is
important to us, as we aim to reduce disruption to our customers and those
with whom we share the sea. We recognise that our work can sometimes have an
impact on those who earn their livelihoods from fishing and other
marine-based industries. That is why we are working with their representative
bodies to carefully plan our projects.
Shortly we will look to begin
an inspections programme, with 35 cables currently scheduled for routine
checks. SSEN is also planning to replace four cables connecting the Scottish
mainland with our island customers.
These replacement projects
include Carradale to Arran, Mull to Coll and both Hoy North and Hoy Centre.
It is our intention to complete these works as a single bundle. Subject to
weather conditions, initial survey works are programmed for winter 2020/21,
with completion and energisation forecast for spring/summer 2022.

Wherever possible, SSEN
proactively consults with our local communities, local businesses, elected
members and other key stakeholders to help minimise disruption. We work with
local media and identify multiple channels to help promote our projects and
engage with as wide an audience as possible, in the planning and delivery of
our important programme.
