Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) has successfully connected the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC) to the transmission network.
The connection project has been in construction since early 2017 and saw upgrades to SSEN’s existing substation in Dyce, over 7km of new 132kV underground cable between Dyce and the wind farm’s onshore substation at Blackdog, the replacement of 12km of overhead lines between Dyce and Kintore and the removal of two existing towers at Stoneyhill. The 92.4MW EOWDC, also known as Aberdeen Offshore Wind Farm, is Scotland’s largest offshore wind test and demonstration facility. The EOWDC will trial next generation technology.
