Many thanks to all the Local 258 IBEW members who worked on this mega-project and took the photos and videos and to Brother Brad Masse for putting the video together. This BC Hydro project went into service in 2015.

From the Hotline - July, 2016:

Meeting the Challenge – Moving the Power

Local 258 IBEW members build BC Hydro’s Interior to Lower Mainland Transmission Line

Described as BC Hydro’s biggest transmission line construction project in 40 years, Local 258 IBEW members used their skill, expertise and safe work practices to build the 500 kV Interior to Lower Mainland Transmission Line that went into service at the end of 2015, delivering the growing electricity demands of residents and businesses in BC’s Lower Mainland.

Construction on the project got underway in 2012 with Local 258 IBEW members working with Rokstad (signatory line contractor on the Union’s Master Line Agreement) building and constructing the transmission towers and stringing the conductor lines for the 245 km. project that stretched from just outside of Merritt at the Nicola Substation to the Meridian Substation in Coquitlam.

BC Hydro line construction crews were assigned a 19 km. stretch of the project at one of the most geographically challenging sections near Spuzzum that involved crossing two railways, a river, the Trans-Canada Highway and an existing transmission line.

Overall, Local 258 IBEW members constructed over 600 steel transmission towers of various types and almost 3,000 km. of conductor line was installed.

Many thanks to all of our members who worked on this project, showcasing their expertise and safe work practices in this unique and exciting skilled trade.
