California-based utility Imperial Irrigation District (IID) has selected Abengoa to lead a new transmission project that includes upgrades to a 230 kV transmission line and substations.

The Path 42 project is part of a plan to extend the power grid being developed by IID, the sixth largest electrical utility in California, in order to increase the capacity of the network and enable access to new sources of renewable energy in California. The contract involves the reconductoring of a total of 32 km of transmission line, as well as the upgrade of existing substations, under a turnkey engineering, procurement and construction contract.

The project is expected to be complete by April 2014.
