a proposed 400kV substation near to, and connecting back into, the existing Monk Fryston substation
to connect the existing 275kV Poppleton to Monk Fryston (XC/XCP) overhead line, which currently goes into the existing Monk Fryston substation, into the proposed 400kV substation. This will include a short section of proposed overhead line and will require some of the existing overhead line to be dismantled
to connect the existing 400kV Monk Fryston to Eggborough (4YS) overhead line, which currently goes into the existing Monk Fryston substation, into the new Monk Fryston substation. This will require some additional equipment in the substation and a section of the existing overhead line to be dismantled.
What options did we consider for the Monk Fryston substation area?
We need a site close to our existing Monk Fryston substation, with sufficient space to accommodate a new substation covering an area approximately 350m x 210m.
We identified three potential siting areas which meet our technical and engineering requirements, and which we believe best balance the impact on the local community and the environment (See Figure 11).
