What will it look like?
If approved, the 240 kV transmission line will be built using mostly steel monopole structures ranging in height from approximately 38 to 46 metres. Non-typical structures such as steel lattice towers, double steel poles, poles with wider bases, and the use of guy wires may be required at certain locations along the line. This includes where the line turns corners or has to span longer distances such as the North Saskatchewan River.
This will be a double circuit transmission line, meaning it will have six wires strung across the structures and one or two shield wires strung on top. A double circuit transmission line is two transmission lines using mostly one set of structures. This way we can decrease the number of transmission line routes and meet the demand for electricity.
