Hydro One Selects Valard for the Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) Services for the Waasigan Transmission Line
Valard is one of two successful participants named by Hydro One in the early contractor involvement (ECI) process, for the development of the proposed Waasigan Transmission Line Project in Northwestern Ontario. As our President/CEO, Barkley Adams said in the March 5th Hydro One release:
“Building transmission lines is not just about energy security, it’s about bringing together communities, Indigenous Peoples and local business to explore where environmental excellence, opportunity and utility infrastructure innovation align. We are excited to partner alongside Hydro One to leverage our 40 years of electric transmission development and construction experience, from within northwestern Ontario and across the country, for the Waasigan Transmission Line Project.”
Telecom Crew on Top of the World!
TC Infrastructure (Valard sister co.) provided this beautiful picture taken when a Telecom crew was coming back from Inuvik in mid-January, where they were finishing off some work now that the river crossings are passable.
Power to the People!
On a sunny winter day in February, a Valard crew finished the final pole for Fortis Alberta project in Brooks, Alberta. The service will provide power for a new bakery and restaurant.

A year ago we began making our way through a world-wide pandemic. Our new normal isn’t always easy, and we’ve all given up a lot to keep each other safe.
Now we have many reasons for optimism – vaccines are being distributed, infection numbers are coming down in many jurisdictions and we are more knowledgeable on the subject of pandemics (did anyone know what social distancing meant before 2020!?).
In order to continue to keep ourselves, our families and our coworkers safe, we have to stay the course. It might be tough but we’ve proven we can do it.
Let’s stay strong and get into the end zone.
