This Alberta Transportation project included pavement rehabilitation of 17.85 km of Highway 64:02 from the British Columbia border to 6 km east of Highway 717, as well as a safety rest area at km 1.4. The pavement rehabilitation included subgrade excavation, mill and fill transverse crack repair, spray patch, and an asphalt overlay. Other work
This project involved the expansion of High River’s and Okotoks’ substations. For the Okotoks substation, 11 concrete pile foundations and 1 circuit breaker pad foundation were installed. The High River substation was upgraded by expanding the substation pad. The fence was modified contain this expansion, and 5 concrete pile foundations and 1 circuit breaker pad foundation were installed.
The Black Spruce 154S Substation is a new 240-kV switching station located 35 km south of Conklin, Alberta, on the Cenovus Christina Lake Project Site. This substation provides reliable power to the oil industry in that region. Site preparation, grading, and an access road were necessary for this project.
This greenfield project involved stripping topsoil and constructing a substation pad. This included installing 336 screw piles, 4 breaker pads, 2 transformer pads with Sorbweb oil containment, and constructing the substation access road. Finally, the site was remediated by placing topsoil and grass seeding.
Located northwest of Medicine Hat, Bowmanton 244S is a substation that switches from 138 kV to 240 kV. CAP constructed the 240-kV side of the substation. The work for the concrete foundations included the installation of 170 concrete piles, 9 concrete circuit breaker pads, 2 concrete transformer pads, and 2 oil containment systems. Survey was required for layout, checks, and as-builts.
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.
