New Transmission Line Engineered and Constructed for Electricity Reliability

I.B. Abel’s Utility Services team completed all electrical construction work for a new double circuit 69kV transmission line that spans approximately two miles in Lewisburg, PA. Tapping off of an existing 69kV line and ending at a pump house substation, crews worked safely and diligently every inch of the way to engineer and construct high-quality results that increased electricity reliability.

This project included the installation of antivibration dampers and marker balls over the Susquehanna River, as well as complete installation of the following:

  • 1.7 miles of dual circuit 556 ACSR conductor
  • 0.4 miles of dual circuit 795 ACSS conductor
  • 2 miles of OPGW
  • 7 custom poles on foundations
  • 17 LD poles and 2 switch poles
