Eastern Alberta Transmission Line

Longest Line in Alberta History

We assembled and erected the two largest lattice towers in ATCO Electric’s history, and installed the longest single-line fibre route as well. The project stretched 485 km’s, from Gibbons, AB to Brooks, AB.

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.
