In May 2019, Hydro One sent notification indicating the commencement of a Class Environmental Assessment (EA) to install a temporary 115 kilovolt (kV) wood and composite pole transmission line, approximately 13 km in length, in the City of Hamilton. This work was required to ensure continuous power supply to the Enbridge Westover Customer Transformer Station (CTS) during the refurbishment of an existing 115 kV line between Harpers Junction and the Enbridge Westover CTS.
Hydro One has decided to not proceed with the proposed temporary 115 kV wood and composite pole transmission line.
As a result, Hydro One is cancelling the Class EA for the Westover to Copetown temporary transmission line project.
We continue to plan for the refurbishment for the existing line between Harpers Junction and the Enbridge Westover CTS. This important work will ensure our infrastructure is safe, reliable and continue to help energize life for people and communities.
