The Electrical Connection

The electricity generated by the power station will need to be exported to the National Electricity Transmission System which is owned and operated by National Grid.  It will be National Grid’s responsibility to design and build the connection to our site.

National Grid has undertaken preliminary investigations and design work and the electrical connection will be relatively straightforward. Two existing pylons will be removed and replaced by two new pylons to be constructed very close to the location of the existing pylons.

The proposed works to be carried out by National Grid, formed part of the Development Consent Order application submitted by Knottingley Power Ltd.

Indicative drawings of the proposed electrical connection works are shown here.
