SSE - Subsea Cables

SSE - Subsea Cables

SSE own one electricity transmission network and two electricity distribution networks, comprising 106,000 substations and 130,000 km of overhead lines and underground cables across one third of the UK.  We currently have over 100 subsea power cables within the waters in and around Scotland which are supporting the surrounding islands.  The cables cover a total of 9km of 132kV, 303km of 33kV and 150km of 11kV subsea power cables.  Due to our network improvement strategy, there will be an increase in the number of subsea cables being installed around the coast of Scotland in the next 10 years.
