We need to build two new cable sealing end compounds to manage power flows on the existing XC/XCP overhead line, which currently connects to the existing 275kV Tadcaster Tee to Knaresborough (XD/PHG) overhead line in this area. The two cable sealing end compounds (named Tadcaster Tee East and Tadcaster Tee West), each with a footprint of approximately 2,000m2 (0.2 hectares), would be connected by a short section (approximately 350m) of underground cable. We would install gantries in each location, which would be approximately 15m high.
We would also need to remove an existing pylon, which would be replaced with a new pylon approximately 40m to the south-east to allow a connection to the new Tadcaster Tee West cable sealing end compound.
