SCOPE OF WORK: Develop new, collaborative EPC project model to mitigate the interference effects arising from the energization of the Fort McMurray West 500kV Transmission Project. A&B completed AC interferences, field work, design and installation, ROW clearing, and road access construction.
The project began with business development and early planning commencing in 2016. Construction started in late 2017 and was completed in March 2019. The successful completion of this project involved: support and approval from 43 pipeline owner companies to review all assets within proximity to project transmission line to determine AC interference mitigation requirements, negotiation of multi-party agreements to enable completion of construction work, and project managed, engaged and led engineering, survey, land and internal construction teams, as well as client and pipeline owner company shared services and resources to ensure consistent standard of AC interference mitigation installations along 500km route. Energization occurred 3 months ahead of schedule and there were no LTIs or recordable incidents for this project.
TIME TO COMPLETE: 4 years
