K-Line worked with SaskPower to rebuild the section of line from the Radville tap to the Ogema substation, and this was the second phase in the rebuilding of the entire W1A line. The project consisted of replacing 289 wood structures and reconductor stringing new Hawk 477 conductor and adding 1 new 5/16” OHSW. The existing 1/4” shield wire was replaced with a 5/16” OHSW using reconductor stringing methods. The line is designed and constructed to support up to 138kV for future considerations.
- Full line rebuild
- 47km in length
- Replacement of 266 tangent wood structures including 10 long-span tangents, 4 anti-cascading tangents, 2 transposition structures and 2 structure-specific tangents
- Building of a new D14-010 double dead-end structure
- The project was completed safely, on time and within budget
- SaskPower was pleased with the smooth execution K-Line was able to achieve for this project
