Design, Testing and Construction of Monopole Structures

A 10-km section of double-circuit 500-kV monopole structures is built in less than 24 months for a system reinforcement project.

In 2009, the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) directed AltaLink L.P. and EPCOR Distribution & Transmission Inc. to prepare a facility application for a system reinforcement transmission project near Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, Canada. Known as Alberta’s Industrial Heartland, Fort Saskatchewan is home to many petrochemical production and oil-refining facilities.
