Project Details

Together with our partners, CAP installed 263 self-supporting and guyed steel lattice towers for this project. This transmission line spans 95 km of isolated mountainous terrain. It extends from the Bob Quinn airstrip, to Imperial Metals’ Red Chris Mine and the surrounding communities at Tatogga Lake.

CAP’s Role

CAP provided services for management, surveying, and civil construction. We created and implemented a quality management plan for both the civil and electrical portions of work. Upon completion of the project, CAP constructed 154 steel grillage foundations. We drilled, grouted, and installed 400 tower anchors over 3,000 m. We then constructed 88 reinforced concrete and grout tower foundation pads. Due to the transmission line’s isolated location and extreme weather conditions, CAP overcame multiple challenges with material and equipment procurement over the course of the project.
