To better serve our customers in Hamilton and THE surrounding area, we are planning to refurbish the existing 115 kilovolt (kV) line between Horning Mountain Junction (JCT) and Glanford JCT.

 

This transmission line, installed in 1915, is critical to serving electricity customers in the City of Hamilton. It is approaching its end-of-life and has been identified for replacement. The planned line refurbishment work is essential to ensure a safe and reliable electricity supply into the future.

The Horning Mountain JCT to Glanford JCT line refurbishment consists of two scopes of work:
 

  1. Building a bypass line on the existing transmission circuit to ensure continued power to customers during construction. This will involve installing new equipment and wires on existing towers and installing approximately 20 temporary wood pole structures to accommodate the bypass line.
     

  2. Replacing and relocating approximately 33 lattice towers with new steel monopole structures, lattice towers and new components to ensure infrastructure is aligned within the existing corridor. Work will also include reinforcing the remaining towers within the corridor.
