Pingewood Substation

I was pleased to receive a letter from the Environment Agency today telling me that Scottish and Southern Electricity (SSE), acting on advice from the Agency and West Berkshire Council, have carried out work to make Pingewood substation more resilient. This includes raising all the equipment above the 1 in 100 flood level, installing flood gates at the entrances and repairing the external walls. In addition, SSE have purchased pumps and cleared the land drains around the site to ensure water drains from the area as quickly as possible.
