SP Energy Networks has completed the build of a new primary substation in Lanarkshire following a £6 million investment.

£6m network investment in East Kilbride

The investment took place following detailed studies by the business which identified the network in South West East Kilbride as being at capacity, and following indications from South Lanarkshire Council of potential development in the area.

Work included the installation of more than 16km of cables in the area, and the installation of new low noise transformers and modern switchgear.

The new primary substation now provides power to more than 2,000 homes and businesses in East Kilbride, with capacity for up to an additional 5,000 connections.

Craig Arthur, distribution director at SP Energy Networks, said: “The multi-million pound investment into the new primary substation in Lanarkshire will ensure that SP Energy Networks continues to deliver a secure and reliable service to  our customers in the Lanarkshire area. The work will safeguard the network for years to come and ensure our ability to support new customers as the number of residents in the area continues to grow.”
