Our long and successful relationship providing construction services for ATCO led to a Master Service Agreement between CANA and ATCO. As part of this agreement, CANA replaced power distribution poles in the Peace River area that had reached their maximum life cycle.
Distribution poles must be changed regularly to maintain the safety of the distribution system. CANA changed approximately 250 distribution poles ranging from 25 kv to 14.4 kv.
The wet and inclement weather in summer 2019 presented our team with a major challenge: safely removing these hot poles. We took extra safety precautions to prevent any issues by working slower.
CANA completed this project within ATCO’s timelines to their satisfaction. CANA expects to provide ATCO with more pole replacements through 2020.
