BUFFALO CREEK PROJECT
ATCO is proposing a new 144 kV transmission line from the existing 7L65 Transmission Line near the Village of Mannville into a new substation, to be known as Drury. A new single circuit 240 kV Transmission line will be constructed from the Drury Substation to the service territory boundary. Altalink will complete the Transmission line project to Nilrem substation near Hardisty. The project is to reinforce and upgrade the transmission system capability of the central east sub-region and to ultimately improve capacity in the Lloydminster Area.
