SSE – Refurbishment of 132kV Overhead Line

Actavo is currently working on the refurbishment of the 132kV overhead tower line from Fort William Grid Substation to Lundavra, Scotland which is 9.3km in length. It is comprised of 33 double circuit PL16 steel towers for installing a new Phase Conductor 175mm2 (Lynx) ACSR, a new OPGW earthwire, insulators and associated fittings.
