SP Energy Networks starts £1.7m substation upgrade

The upgrade, which will start this month (May) and take around one year to complete, includes the installation of new technology within Cupar primary substation to allow SP Energy Networks to continue serving its 20,000 customers in Fife with a safe and reliable electricity supply.

As part of the upgrade, the distribution network operator is installing fault monitoring equipment which will improve fault response and ensure a stronger and more resilient supply for its customers in the area. Customers will also benefit from a back-up facility in the event power loss does occur, reducing disruption through interconnection of the surrounding area.

Craig Arthur, SP distribution director, said: “At SP Energy Networks we are committed to futureproofing the network for our customers. As demand for electricity increases and we transition to a greener society, it’s important that our network can support this, therefore projects such as the upgrade in Cupar are vital so that we can continue to provide our customers in Fife with a reliable supply.”
