Progress has a nice ring to it

ENMAX Power completes crucial infrastructure before the Southwest Ring Road can be built.

To accommodate the Southwest Calgary Ring Road project, Alberta Transportation approached ENMAX Power about relocating the utility corridor existing south of Glenmore Trail. Approximately 14 km of 138 kV transmission line have been moved, encompassing three transmission lines, six distribution feeders, and the construction of substation 35. The project has reported zero safety incidents to date.

A portion of the previous corridor existed within Weaselhead Flats natural environment park. ENMAX Power completed an environmental impact assessment to avoid wildlife disturbance and also held comprehensive public engagement meetings and a historical resource impact assessment to identify and archive any objects discovered during construction.

ENMAX Power is on track to have the project completed by September of 2017, a crucial first step towards the completion of the Southwest Ring Road, scheduled for 2021.

ENMAX is one of the most reliable transmission and distribution utilities in Canada, and that comes from the ongoing investment we’ve made - $1.2 billion over the last five years – to build, maintain and replace aging electricity transmission and distribution infrastructure to meet Calgary’s needs. As the largest retailer in Alberta, our competitive business adapted well to the changing electricity landscape in our province, effectively securing and managing the power supply necessary for our customers.”
