Rockstad, a subsidiary of Carillion Canada, has been selected by Manitoba Hydro as the preferred provider for the next phase of its $4.6 billion Bipole lll high-voltage transmission line project.

The project involves clearing rights of way, the installation of access roads, foundations and anchors, the assembly of towers, and the stringing of cables for three packages of the Bipole lll project, which includes 1,384 km of transmission lines and two converter stations, starting at Keewatinohk in Northern Manitoba and ending at Sandy Bay Ojiway First Nation in Southern Manitoba. When the whole Bipole lll project (#7 on our 2016 Top100 Projects list) is completed, it will deliver renewable energy to Southern Manitoba and to the United States.

We expect to agree final terms and achieve contract signature shortly to enable work to begin before the end of the year, with completion scheduled for 2018.

Carillion Group chief executive, Richard Howson, said: “We are delighted to have been selected for this important project, which further demonstrates the quality and strength of Rokstad’s offering and the success of our strategy of expanding our infrastructure services activities in Canada into the power transmission and distribution market, with the acquisition of Rokstad in 2014.”
