Who we are
We are responsible for monitoring the efficiency and integrity of the submarine electricity cable network which provides power supplies from the mainland to fifty-nine Scottish Islands, including the Inner and Outer Hebrides, Arran and the Orkney Islands.
We also serve the Shetland Islands, which run as a separate electrical system without a connection to the mainland. To ensure these island communities continue to receive a safe and reliable source of electricity, we run a programme of inspections and when necessary install new cables to replace those coming to the end of their operational life.
A significant programme of investment is currently underway to ensure the fifty-nine Scottish Islands who depend on us continue to receive a safe, a reliable supply of electricity through our submarine cables.
