This project included reconstructing a 69kV electric transmission line stretching approximately 12 miles northeast from the Ohio Central Substation in Dresden, Ohio, to the Cyclops Substation in Conesville, Ohio. The project area spanned 13 wetlands. The construction included 167 monopole steel structures along with wooden mid-span poles. ECSL, a joint venture of Houston-based EC Source and Chicago-headquartered Sargent & Lundy, handled the construction and engineering of the line. Construction also included adding a bay to the Ohio Central Substation and switch poles at the North Dresden Substation and Conesville Substation. An added construction element for crews on the project were the distribution lines and underbuild, which workers had to work around and relocate as part of rebuilding the 69kV line.
Energy Environmental Group (EEG), a subsidiary of EC Source, provided environmental support for ECSL construction crews. EEG also ensured environmental compliance with U.S. EPA regulations affecting the wetlands within and near the transmission line.
