Chicago Midwest Section
Major Power Construction Project - A Case Study: 40 Mile Long, Double Circuit, 230kV Reconductor Project
Speaker: Jason Emerine, PE from Exponent

Registration fee: $35
A large electric utility owns and operates the 40 mile long, double circuit, 230 kilovolt transmission line that runs between three substations. The utility plans to reconductor the line and add 700 megawatts of capacity, which would increase reliability and responsive support in the service area during outages within the local system. The project will take approximately 16 to 24 months to complete and will cost approximately $80M. Construction is expected to begin in summer of 2015, with an energization date in December 2017.
Mr. Emerine's presentation will provide a brief background of the project. The primary focus will be on the critical decision behind selection of a new light-weight conductor and its impact on the design, environment, scope, schedule and cost.
