Massena Marcy 765 kV Line
Massena Marcy 765 kV Line

To bring Quebec’s environmentally friendly hydrospace to the Northeast, our T&D group was responsible for the permitting design of the Ultra High Voltage Massena Macy 765 kV transmission line for the New York Power Authority. The comprehensive scope of work included route selection, coordinating survey work, land acquisitions, permit application (including expert testimony), project cost, transmission line design, soil borings and foundation design, construction bid analysis, material procurement, construction management and claims preparation of “as builts” for 136 miles of 765 kV transmission line from the Canadian border to Marcy substation in Marcy, New York. This also included the design of 765/500/230 kv substation in Massena, New York. This project required a presidential border crossing permit to carry hydro-electric power from Hydro Quebec to New York.

The power line with a bundle of 4 phase conductors is supported on steel lattice towers with grillage foundations and steel poles with caisson foundations. The structures, with average height of 120 feet, occupy a minimum of 250 foot wide right-of-way. This transmission line is one of the few UHV lines in the nation.
