138kV Transmission Line Aroostook County, Maine

Through the creative use of technology, SGC was able to realize cost savings with respect to the permitting and design of a new 138kV transmission line planned by Maine Public District, Emera Maine. From the original construction drawings, SGS developed a PLS-CADD model for an existing 69kV transmission line, running adjacent to the proposed line route. This modeling effort required the drawings to be scanned and digitized. By referencing the PLS-CADD model to ground coordinates using GPS data, SGC was able to import current wetland delineation surveys, completed using GPS, enabling the client to proceed with the design process.
