Haste called to assist SSE
with the Kintyre storms

The Kintyre peninsula was battered by a late winter storm in March 2013, bringing down countless power lines and affecting 20,000 households.

Haste were tasked by SSE Hydro staff to provide temporary generator power to vulnerable customers in remote locations.

A task team of 10 worked tirelessly for 9 days, sourcing, deploying & re-fuelling about thirty 3 kw portable sets in various locations over about 60 miles of the headland.

We got the job done and exceeded SSE expectations despite battling 3 m snow drifts and sub-zero temperatures. Each man on the ground had to use their initiative and unique customer service skills to deal with a variety of challenges they faced (not least their map reading skills!)
