This transmission development interconnected the Greengate Power Corporation’s Blackspring Ridge I Wind Project to Alberta’s Integrated Electric System (AIES). The developed has allowed Alberta’s customers to be connected to new green sources of electricity to power their homes, farms and businesses.
This project consisted of the assembly and erection of three 240 kV circuit breakers; three sets of 240 kV current transformers; three sets of 240 kV capacitive voltage transformers; three 240 kV motor operated airbreak switches; and six 240 kV manually operated airbreak switches. All associated protection, control and SCADA systems including the supply and installation of a new control building were completed, tested and commissioned by our highly qualified team of technologists.
CANA High Voltage performed the construction and testing & commissioning for the structural, electrical, and protection & control systems for the new AltaLink switching substation.
