Rosyth 296s Substation Upgrade

Location: Hardisty, Alberta

Client: AltaLink Management LP

Date of Completion: 2018

Voltage: 138kV, 25kV

Scope: Brownfield EPC + Commissioning (Prime Contractor)

The objective of the Rosyth upgrade project was to prepare the area for the future addition of the Battle Sands substation. The challenge on the project was for Rising Edge to complete temporary designs for the work to ensure that the substation could be energized between outages, while the Rising Edge full scope was still in progress. Since outages were of supreme concern, Rising Edge’s solution was to move from a screw pile design to a concrete design resulting in the removal of one of three originally planned outages, providing a cost savings. Rising Edge also installed an A-frame replacement, breaker addition, protection upgrades and line structure.
