The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) approved the project in June 2011. Construction activities are planned from summer 2011 to winter 2014.
AltaLink assembles transmission structures at designated structure yards and uses a helicopters to erect and transport structures. Using helicopters is significantly faster than other construction techniques and reduces the amount of construction traffic and corresponding environmental impacts along the transmission line right-of-way.

The Cassils to Bowmanton Transmission Project is part of an area transmission development called the Southern Alberta Transmission Reinforcement (SATR). This reinforcement includes new transmission lines and upgrades to the electric system in southern Alberta. These projects will connect new wind-generated power to Alberta’s electric system and strengthen the transmission system in the area.
The project includes:
Although we attempt to follow the anticipated project schedule it is subject to change. We will continue to provide you with updated schedule information as the project progresses.
