Event Description and Agenda:
New transmission projects are being proposed, planned and built all over the US and Canada and the reasons for going underground vary widely. In some cases going underground is necessary in order to bring a project to completion, based on public pressure or constrained space. Going underground with transmission has traditionally been a transmission owner's last resort because the cost of underground transmission is many times the cost of overhead transmission and maintenance and repair has proved costly and difficult. However, advanced cable technologies are being developed, installation techniques have expanded in terms of options and efficiency while cost factors have improved.
This conference will engage attendees in examples of recent underground projects and the challenges and lessons learned from those as well as technology advancements and challenges facing projects. The meeting will end with a tour of Nexan's new cable factory.
