BC Hydro – 60L129 Circuit Uprating, Vancouver Island

Project Description

Location: British Columbia
Details: Radial 69kV Transmission Line Uprating
Completion Date: November 2015

Rokstad Power was contracted to complete work on BC Hydro circuit 60L129 in order to upgrade the line rating to 90°C. This included over 300 structure replacements as well as the completion of various identified circuit deficiencies including broken insulators and cross arms, full tension automatic splice replacements and conductor to ground clearance issues. A dual purpose of the uprating is to allow for fibre optic (ADSS) to be run to the remote communities on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
