Homeland Power & Utility Completes Transmission Line

March 24, 2022
The project was performed on an accelerated eight-month schedule, and completed in January 2022.

The Utility Division of Homeland Power & Utility, LLC, based in Bangor, Maine, has completed the 138kV transmission line 1176 Rebuild project in Presque Isle for Versant Power. The project entailed construction of over five miles of off-road transmission line upgrade and modernization.

Homeland Power & Utility’s project operations included clearing and corridor work, installing extensive environmental matting to create safe conditions for construction, as well as protecting sensitive wetlands from damage, widening a new ROW, setting 49 new double and triple-pole structures, and pulling over 27,000 feet of conductor, static, and OPGW (fiber cable).

Homeland Power & Utility was also responsible for overseeing all environmental controls in the turnkey project. Prior to installation of new structures, all old structures and wire were wrecked out by Homeland. The new transmission line ties into the existing Presque Isle substation. Homeland managed a field crew ranging upwards of 30 IBEW Local 104 linemen at peak construction. The project was performed on an accelerated eight-month schedule, and completed in Jan. 2022.
