Onshore substation construction

  • Blackdog onshore substation works

  • Transformer delivery

The European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre’s substation is located in Blackdog, Aberdeenshire. 

Onshore construction began in October 2016 and will be complete by summer 2018. The onshore substation consists of two buildings, one which encloses the transformer, which was delivered in early 2018.

At the substation the clean electricity produced at the wind farm is converted from 66kV to 132kV for transmission to SSE’s Dyce substation, for further transformation to 275kV and connection to the National Grid network.
