Steel Monopoles Replace Deteriorating H-Frame Wood Poles in Historic Estuary

In the Ebey Slough basin of Snohomish County, Washington, nearly two miles of high-voltage transmission lines traversed decades-old, deteriorating wood poles, which jeopardized the safety and reliability of an essential part of the Puget Sound Energy (PSE) power grid. Discover how Trinity Meyer designed a solution that provided long-term performance, while overcoming the various environmental and aesthetic hurdles. Read more.

 

250 Unique Steel Structure Designs Help Empower Massive Transmission Project

Steel Monopoles Leave Light Footprint on the Environment

The need for a new line was clear. A large portion of northwestern Wisconsin’s transmission grid was built to meet the electricity needs of the 1940s and 1950s. By the late 1990s, the state’s demand for electricity was growing 2% - 3% each year. The existing line could not reliably accommodate this kind of growth and threatened, under certain load conditions, to cause blackouts across large, populated areas. The solution: Improve the reliability of the grid by building a new 345kV line, 220 miles long from Wausau, Wisconsin to Duluth, Minnesota – the area’s most challenging infrastructure project in decades.
