High-Powered Conversion

ITC Michigan reconfigures towers and conductor to support new wind generation, saving resources, time and millions of dollars.

Lattice-steel towers and a single-circuit extra-high-voltage transmission line were built for a planned nuclear plant nearly four decades ago. Today these structures are empowering a critical stretch of electrical transmission infrastructure capable of supporting up to 5000 MW of new wind generation in the Thumb region of Michigan, U.S.
