New mandate: Construction of Paugan-Maniwaki double-circuit line – Phase 2

April 11th 2019

GLR is pleased announce that it will be completing the second phase of the 120 kV transmission line between the Paugan and Maniwaki substations, in Gatineau Valley. This second phase is a two-stage process:

• Dismantling the existing line traversing 147 wooden poles to make way for a new line;

• Constructing the new 33.3-km line along 108 biternate steel pylons (rigid and guyed). The term "biternate" means the line supports two circuits, allowing for the transmission of twice as much electricity over one line.

The project will be completed by autumn 2019.
