The Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) has approved the proposed Fort McMurray West Transmission Project.

In its 353-page decision, AUC approved the 500-kilometre transmission project that will improve the power supply to northeastern Alberta. The project includes a 500-kV AC single-circuit transmission line from the Thickwoods Hills area west of Fort McMurray to the Livock 939S substation, and a second 500-kV AC single-circuit transmission line from the Livock substation to the 510S Sunnybrook substation west of Edmonton.

The 353-page decision, Decision 21030-D02-2017, addresses all considerations regarding health, safety, environment, and noise impacts resulting the construction of the new line. It also speaks to the preferred route for the line in regards to the impact on agricultural lands and caribou ranges along the proposed routes.

The $1.43 billion project, #32 on the 2017 Top100 Projects list, is scheduled for substantial completion in 2019.
