Contract awarded for Ontario transmission line

NextBridge Infrastructure has appointed Quanta Services to construct the Ontario East-West Tie Line project in northern Ontario.

Quanta’s operating subsidiary Valard Construction will provide construction services, including project management, and the installation of approximately 290 miles of double-circuit 230kV transmission line. The line will connect Hydro One's Wawa Transformer Station, Marathon Transformer Station and Lakehead Transformer Station.

Quanta expects construction to begin in late 2018 with completion due in late 2020.

Quanta's president and chief executive officer Duke Austin said that the project is expected to create up to 700 jobs during construction and provide additional economic benefits to the local community through the purchase of goods and services necessary to support operations.
