/ Longest Line in Alberta's History

The project stretched 485 km's, from Gibbons, AB to Brooks, AB.

This project included challenges such as:

  • 1,387 heavy steel lattice towers

  • Concrete pile foundations as deep as 40-90 feet

  • 700 employees at peak, and

  • ~1,200 infrastructure crossings including major highways and existing transmission infrastructure

Valard completed all elements of the line’s construction from the foundations to tower assembly and erection, and stringing the conductors.

The work required was completed entirely by Quanta Services Group of Companies.
