SaskPower - Energized 230 kV Double Circuit Tower Raise Project

Saskatchewan, Canada

This was Ampjack’s first raise project in Canada. Phase 1 was completed in 2015, 26 lattice structures of two tower types were lifted in 5’-0" or 2'-6" increments to total 7'-6", 10’-0", 12'-6" and 15’-0" raises.

Along with the towers being raised, it was determined by our engineering group that the structures needed to be upgraded to handle the additional loads of the raise. The entire structure was upgraded, to meet the new loading requirements. Phase 2 was completed in 2016, including 22 additional tower raises completed.
