This consultation document sets out our views and proposals on the Final Needs Case for the Shetland transmission link project and delivery model.
Today, we have also published a separate consultation document setting out our views and proposals on the Final Needs Case for the Western Isles transmission project.
Stakeholders wishing to respond to our consultation should contact NTIMailbox@ofgem.gov.uk.
Please note, on 17 May 2019, we published three additional documents relating to our assessment of the Shetland Final Needs Case:
- A report on the Shetland CBA produced by the ESO.
- A report on the Shetland CBA produced by SHE-T’s consultants, GHD.
- A report on Mott Macdonald’s technical review on the impact of upgrading the Kergord converter station from 600MW to 800MW
The reports have been redacted to remove any commercially sensitive information. These have been published following receipt of an information request. To allow us time to consider the request, and time for stakeholders to consider the additional information, in late April we extended the consultation deadline from 3 May to 31 May 2019. Stakeholders who have already submitted responses may wish to reconsider their submissions in light the further information published.
