Pastoria – Pardee 230kV Transmission Line Construction, CA

Wilson rebuilt approximately four miles of 230kV lattice steel transmission line, one of the oldest in the West, which had become prone to ice damage. The upgrade involved raising the conductor at clearance impairments to re-rate the line to 100°C. It involved removing insulation at 15 structures, installing floating dead-ends at 3 structures and installing 4 wood pole H-frame structures.

Almost all work was performed from the air and over extreme environmentally sensitive areas.
