SSE's response to Court of Session Ruling

SSE plc welcomes today’s ruling by the Inner House of the Court of Session regarding its Glendoe Hydro Scheme.

Martin Pibworth, Wholesale Director, said:  “SSE welcomes the positive decision of the Court of Session today concerning the tunnel collapse at our Glendoe Hydro Scheme near Fort Augustus. The Hydro Scheme had to be shut down for nearly three years whilst rectification works resulting from a defect which existed prior to take over of the scheme by SSE were carried out. Since its re-opening in 2012, Glendoe has been making an important contribution to Britain’s electricity supply.”
