This letter sets out our proposed efficient costs for SHE Transmission’s Caithness Moray transmission project in northern Scotland. We propose this is £1,062.3 million – we don’t think the project cost of £1,236.2 million SHE Transmission proposed is justified on the evidence presented. This letter includes:

  • Consultation questions
  • Background on the Caithness Moray project and our July needs case decision
  • Summary of our project assessment and our proposed efficient costs
  • Proposal to update SHE Transmission’s revenue forecast in January 2015 instead of November 2014 so that the efficient costs for this project are incorporated into the company’s 2015/16 revenues
  • Next steps, including how to respond to this consultation.

We are seeking your views on our project assessment and proposed efficient costs, and ask these are sent to SWW@ofgem.gov.uk by 24 November 2014.
