Quanta Services Inc. has announced that Southern California Edison (SCE) selected PAR Electrical Contractors Inc. (PAR), a Quanta Services company, to install transmission infrastructure for SCE's Eldorado-Ivanpah transmission project.

Quanta's scope of services for the project includes the replacement of a portion of an existing 115 kV electric transmission line with 35 miles of double-circuit, 220 kV electric transmission line. The line will connect a new SCE substation to the Eldorado Substation, near Boulder City, Nev.

Construction on the transmission line is under way, with completion expected by July 2013. The Eldorado-Ivanpah transmission project is expected to provide the electrical facilities and additional transmission capacity to interconnect and deliver up to 1,400 MW of new renewable energy being generated near the southern California-Nevada border.

In addition, SCE selected PAR to construct the 500/220 kV Red Bluff Substation, to be located near the town of Desert Center in eastern Riverside County, Calif. The project includes construction of two parallel transmission line segments to connect the new substation to the existing Devers-Palo Verde 500 kV transmission line and to the new Devers-Colorado River 500 kV transmission line, which PAR is currently installing. The Red Bluff project is expected to be complete by the end of 2013.
