Installing the onshore export cable
The electricity generated by the Seagreen wind turbines will be brought ashore at Carnoustie via around 40km of subsea cables. The subsea cables will be connected to around 19km of underground cables which will take the electricity to our substation at Tealing and then on to the National Electricity Network for distribution to homes and businesses.
The intention is for the installation of the underground cables to begin in September 2020.
The information below is to help you understand how our contractors will install the cables, the mitigation in place and indicative timescales of when the work will take place in each area.
Information boards and maps
We had intended to hold local public engagement events prior to onshore work commencing, but the Covid-19 pandemic and associated Government guidance means that we are unable to safely hold such events.
Therefore, we are providing the information we would have presented at local events in a series of information boards and associated maps which are laid out below.
You can download the boards in one set (marked Information Boards : Full Set) or you can download each board individually as numbered below.
We have also provided a full set of maps detailing the onshore cable route, each referenced in the information boards they appear on. For ease, each of the maps is located next to the information board it appears on.
When you click on an information board or map it will open up in a new browser window in the Adobe PDF format.
