Cable inquiry crucial for wind farm  

Shetland’s wind farm developers Viking Energy say that the Beauly-Denny inquiry will be crucial in deciding the direction their huge renewable energy project will take in the future.

The inquiry will investigate whether to carry out the proposed upgrades to the Beauly to Denny power line, which acts as a spine for providing central Scotland with electricity.

If the alterations were completed, the line would feed power into the national grid from wind farms in the Highlands and Islands, such as the 600 MW Shetland wind farm being proposed by the Viking Energy and Scottish and Southern Energy partnership.

Viking Energy project officer David Thomson said: “Our connection application currently needs the Beauly-Denny upgrade to go ahead. Shetland is not involved in the inquiry but we have an interest.

“It could happen without the upgrade but we would not be connecting near Beauly. It would make it more difficult for us.”
