Beauly Mossford

Beauly Mossford is a reinforcement of the transmission system to the North West of Inverness being undertaken by Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission plc (SHE Transmission). It was completed at the end of 2015 and delivered approximately 252MW to accommodate future renewable generation in the area.

The reinforcement included:

  • the construction of a new substation at Corriemoillie
  • the replacement of the existing 132kV overhead line and tower infrastructure with a double circuit 132kV overhead line
  • an element of underground cable.

We approved £53.2m of additional Allowed Expenditure for the Beauly Mossford project in April 2014.
