  • November 8, 2017: Nalcor responds to comments about the transmission project

    As noted earlier this week, no structural integrity or safety issues have been identified on the towers along the Labrador-Island Transmission Link.

    Nalcor has completed an inspection, or walk down, of the transmission line, which is standard practice prior to the final hand-over of assets from a contractor. During this handover and inspection process, it is not uncommon for items to be identified for the contractor to correct. Nalcor contracted a local company, Team Industrial, to complete the transmission line inspections.

    The structural engineer of record, Quanta Subsurface, has verified that the welding work completed to attach the transmission towers to the base meets and exceeds the loading (weight and movement) requirements of the towers.
