Home Payne Substation to Cathedral Square – BC Hydro 230kV SCFF Transmission Line, Canada

Wilson installed nearly six miles of underground 230kV PPLP cable. For this project, BC Hydro elected to contract directly with the cable manufacturer for both supply and installation of the cable system. Fujikura America, Inc., in turn, contracted the cable installation to Wilson.

This line was for a major trunk line going from BC Hydro's famous Cathedral Substation east to the Home Payne Substation. The entire project was located in busy city and residential streets. The project was completed without incident and the owner and Fujikura were both extremely satisfied with the project.
