Scottish utility upgrading transformer in the Western Isles

United Kingdom, Scotland: Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, SSEN, is investing in the upgrades of the electricity network in the Western Isles.

As part of the upgrade, the company is replacing an existing old transformer at Pollacher on South Uist, the second-largest island of the Outer Hebrides in Scotland, reports The Press and Journal.

The new equipment will not only strengthen the local network but it will have a larger capacity to cope with the higher demand for electricity in the area.

The scheme will cost a total of £730,000 ($930,000) and the new transformer is expected to be energised in late August.
