Project Overview

During a heavy rain and windstorm in the Moab, Utah area in Summer 2021, a 345,000-volt transmission line had a structure break. It caused a chain reaction that knocked down 33 structures on the Huntington-Pinto 345kV transmission line. This is one of Rocky Mountain Power’s backbone transmission lines—critical to supporting the summer heat load in the Rocky Mountain region. 

Approximately 15 crews (80+ tradespeople) were dispatched to make the repairs. Of the 15 crews, CVE sent 4 crews (20+ tradespeople) to work 16-hour days into the weekend to repair and energize the line.
