TNEI carried out a strategic, high-level, Cable Route Optioneering Study to support the connection of proposed offshore renewable infrastructure to onshore grid connection points. This project involved the identification of twenty-two onshore cable route corridors within Scotland, England and Wales.
Utilising ArcGIS, TNEI identified the environmental constraints within the proposed cable route areas, and through a thorough refinement process were able to provide the client with bespoke cable route corridors which avoid environmental constraints, as far as possible.
TNEI have provided the client with a bespoke GIS package tailored to meet their needs in conjunction with a comprehensive report which provides the environmental assessment associated with each route.
