POSTED NOVEMBER 17, 2020 - BC Hydro’s Site C transmission lines and towers are being built and installed across north-eastern BC’s Peace River Regional District and the work is being done UNION by Local 258 IBEW members working with Allteck Line Contractors.
Allteck, a signatory employer on the Union’s Master Line collective agreement, was the successful bidder on the $113 million contract awarded in 2018, and signed a project specific agreement with Local 258 IBEW. The work, expected to be completed in 2023, includes the construction of two new 500kV transmission lines and 400 towers across 75 kilometres to connect the Site C project and the Peace Canyon generating station.
