Grande Prairie 345kV Switching Station
Grande Prairie Switching Station is a 345kV interconnect substation located near O'Neil NE. The WAPA substation will slowly bring the 200 turbine, 400 MW wind farm online in mid to late 2016. This wind farm will power 120,000 homes. The satation will set on about 5 acre of land and will intercept the WAPA Fort Thompson No.2 to Grande Island 345kV transmission line. We started the project in mid October of 2015 and will stretch until July of 2016. This switchyard will soly accomidate the Grande Prairie Wind Farm for know but there is plenty of room to add up to five 345kV line terminals.
Our safety commitment far exceeds industry standards because we understand that in order to be successful, safety has to be paramount.
