Glasgow Harbour is one of the biggest urban regeneration projects in the UK. Close to the city’s bustling West End, the 130 acre site includes hundreds of new homes as well as superb public buildings.* We’re powering that masterplan – not just with energy – but with investment.
We won the tender for the Glasgow Harbour masterplan against stiff competition. We’ve been energising the area, quite literally. We brought in high voltage connections. We added domestic electricity and gas. We dealt with the wayleave issues. But more than that, we put significant funding into the network. As part of SSE, we bring 50 years of technical experience in building and running power networks. But we also bring financial muscle. We can create – not just the connections you need – but attractive, long-term benefits to minimise development costs.
