Scottish Power has completed a two-year feasibility study to determine whether it is possible to expand its 440 megawatt (MW) Cruachan Pumped Storage hydro plant near Oban. The findings show that it would be possible to develop between 400-600 MW additional capacity, with investment of between £300 million to £400 million. Scottish Power will now consider the next steps for the project, including discussions with government on potential support mechanisms.
