Dec 13, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --EC Source Services, LLC, a MasTec, Inc. affiliate, and a provider of transmission line engineering and construction services, has received a multi-year engineer, procure and construct contract from PacifiCorp to build its Sigurd to Red Butte transmission line in south central Utah, a key section of PacifiCorp's Energy Gateway transmission investment to meet the current and projected needs of its electric customers.
EC Source will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for this transmission project. It is the second Energy Gateway segment EC Source has been awarded; the company is currently completing construction of PacifiCorp's 100-mile Mona to Oquirrh line also in Utah.
Sigurd to Red Butte construction is scheduled to begin in 2013. When completed in 2015, it will deliver additional power to serve customers of PacifiCorp's retail operations, Rocky Mountain Power and Pacific Power. Together, these companies serve 1.7 million customers in six western states.
The Sigurd to Red Butte segment is approximately 169 miles in length consisting of a new single circuit 345-kilovolt transmission line from the Sigurd substation in Sevier County to the Red Butte substation in Washington County.
During construction, EC Source will have multiple project facilities along the transmission line route in Utah and will utilize the local Utah labor force. Engineering and procurement activities are expected to begin in December 2012 with construction starting in April 2013 and the line placed in service summer 2015.
"We are proud of the successful Mona to Oquirrh transmission line project for PacifiCorp which is now nearing completion. On the new Sigurd to Red Butte segment, safety, environmental stewardship, technical excellence and providing industry leading labor and equipment resources again will be our primary objectives," said Jose Mas, MasTec's CEO, MasTec. "The award of this second contract will allow us to maintain key personnel in the safe and cost effective growth of EC Source's transmission business."http://www.datamonitor.comRepublication or redistribution, including by framing or similar means,is expressly prohibited without prior written consent.
