Southern California Edison Company

Wilson reconductored 110 miles of 500kV Bluebird conductor for Southern California Edison Company (SCE).

Due to environmental restrictions, the project’s wire pulls were provided by SCE. These pulls ranged from 3 miles to upwards of 6 miles in length. The project also included a 3-mile reconductor section using 3M composite ACCR conductor. This 3-mile pull occurred over a complex I-10/I-15 interchange for which Wilson coordinated and acquired the California Department of Transportation permits and approvals.

Wilson used two company-owned helicopters for structure access on this project. In total, Wilson pilots performed more than 1,750 flight hours.
