Western Alberta Transmission Line HVDC Project - 2016

Teshmont Consultants LP

The Western Alberta Transmission Line is Alberta’s first in-service HVDC (high voltage direct current) line linking Edmonton and Calgary. The 500 kV line improves overall system reliability, reduces system congestion and will save an estimated 350,000 tonnes of carbon emissions from entering the atmosphere each year. In 2010, AltaLink engaged Teshmont Consultants LP of Winnipeg to act as their Owner’s Engineer for the project. Over the course of 5 years, Teshmont performed engineering design studies, prepared specifications, evaluated tenders, assisted with contract negotiations, performed design reviews, witnessed factory tests, delivered specialized training, assisted during system start up and commissioning as well as provided project management support.
