South Foothills Transmission Line


To accommodate significant population growth in the area, WSP provided geomatics services to replace the electrical transmission system serving the Calgary region, which had not been upgraded since 1985.

  • WSP provided turnkey geomatics solutions in support of the planning, design, and construction of a new 135 kilometer, double-circuit, and 240 kilovolt transmission line.
  • The combination of airborne LiDAR, a global navigation satellite system, and conventional survey technologies and methodologies were used to complete the project.
