The AESO has also directed AltaLink to prepare a facility application to complete work to restore the capacity of the 500 kV intertie transmission line between British Columbia and Alberta to its original design.
The Intertie Restoration Project includes:
- Adding equipment underneath the intertie transmission line west of Highway 22.
- Increasing the transmission line’s ground clearance in certain locations.
- Work at the Bennett Substation near Calgary where the line terminates.
