Blackie Area 138 kV Line Re-configuration

The Blackie Area 138 kV Line Re-configuration 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 proposed project includes:

  • removing approximately 24 kilometres of existing single circuit, H-frame 138 kV transmission line and replacing it with a new double circuit, single pole 138 kV transmission line between the Blackie Substation and the Queenstown Substation
  • upgrades to the existing Blackie and Queenstown substations to accommodate new connections for the proposed transmission line
