Transmission Lines, Substations and Interconnection Studies

Transmission Lines, Substations and Interconnection Studies

Reliable electric transmission and distribution systems are essential for the continuous delivery of energy from the generation site to the end user. Establishing a reliable connection with an existing transmission grid system or to an off-grid generation project can be challenging.

Our team has a long track record for conducting the necessary studies for the long-term reliable operation of this critical infrastructure, for transmission lines and substations from 10 kV to 500 kV. We also identify the most viable interconnection solutions for projects from 1 MW to over 1,000 MW and step-up transformers from 4 kV to 500 kV.

We specialize in designing infrastructure to deal with some of the most challenging terrain and climatic conditions on the planet, from the Canadian arctic to the Congo rainforest.
