Pacific Quay & SECC, Finnieston
The new substation will consist of two 90MVA transformers,
interconnected by two new 132kV 100MVA rated circuits. The
substation will consist of traditional oil filled transformers and
switchgear connections with 132kV cable sealing ends. The
substation will also include indoor 33kV and 11kV distribution
switchgear. Separate transmission and distribution control rooms
will be provided, including separate standby LV generation.
A new access road will be constructed to service the substation
from the existing access gate at St Vincent Crescent. The existing
office block will be separated from the new substation.
The substation building will be clad in natural stone with a
sloping zinc roof.

Between 2003 and 2014 Clyde Waterfront was a strategic
partnership comprising the Scottish Government, Scottish
Enterprise, Glasgow City, Renfrewshire and West Dunbartonshire
Councils. Its purpose was to promote the economic, social and
environmental regeneration of 13 miles of the River Clyde from
Glasgow city centre to Dumbarton.
