AltaLink, an independent electric transmission provider based in Canada, has chosen Valard Construction, a Quanta Services company, to install transmission infrastructure in the Conklin and Lac La Biche, Alberta, Canada, areas for the Christina Lake Area Development transmission project.

Under the terms of the contract, Valard and Quanta company McGregor Construction will install approximately 62 miles of 240 kV double circuit alternating current transmission line.

"Once completed, the Christina Lake Area Development transmission project will facilitate the delivery of electricity to meet increasing industrial demand for power in Alberta," says Jim O'Neil, president and CEO of Quanta. "This project is located in a remote area of the province and will be constructed on challenging terrain."

Quanta expects the project to be completed during the first quarter of 2015.
