Scottish Island Links

Scottish Hydro Electric Transmission (SHET) are developing three transmission projects which, if completed, would connect Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles respectively to the transmission network on mainland Scotland.

We will assess the Final Needs Cases for each of these projects as they are brought forward to us by SHET. We will also consider the most appropriate delivery model for each project.

All updates, consultations or decisions that we publish in relation the Orkney, Shetland and Western Isles transmission projects will be published here.
