Four massive transformers heading for Moray substation

United Kingdom, Scotland: Four massive transformers weighing 245 tonnes each will be carried on the back of a specialist truck to Scottish and Southern Electricity Network’s (SSEN) base near Keith.

The large shipment has already arrived at Buckie Harbour from Sweden and will be moved to Blackhillock over four weekends, reports The Press and Journal.

SSEN hailed the impending delivery of the transformers as a “milestone” in the £1.1 billion transmission project to connect Caithness to Moray by a subsea cable.

The electricity line will export power from the north of Scotland and will come ashore near Portgordon before continuing to Blackhillock.

After this weekend the three remaining transformers will be moved on July 16, 23 and 30.
