61L/61AL Transmission Line Removal

AltaLink is proposing to remove approximately 45 kilometres (28 miles) of existing transmission line west of Wainwright and near Irma. The Alberta Electric System Operator has recently informed AltaLink that the 61L and 61AL transmission lines are no longer needed for transmission use. These 69 kilovolt (kV) transmission lines were built in the 1950s and have reached the end of their life.We are proposing to remove these transmission lines from service.
