Emera Newfoundland & Labrador (ENL) intends to build and own a 500 MW +/- 200kV HVDC transmission project between the island of Newfoundland (NL) and Nova Scotia (NS), including a 170 kilometre subsea cable and approximately 400 kilometres of overhead line.
ENL is currently seeking Expressions of Interests (EOI) from companies with extensive experience to provide site preparation for construction sites and right of way access roads along the proposed transmission routes. The scope of future services includes, but is not limited to the following in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland:
- Development of access roads for the transmission line routes and associated project sites
- Upgrade of existing roadways to construction sites
- Leveling and grading for switchyards, grounding sites, transition compounds and laydown areas to support the construction of project assets.
- Installation of foundations, conduits, trenches and fences for grounding sites and transition compounds locations.
The intent of this activity is to identify companies interested in participating in this procurement process and to ensure the Request for Proposal reflects applicable input from potential service providers. Companies interested in participating in this procurement process are required to complete and submit the EOI questionnaire to ENL by 3 p.m. NDT on Wednesday, June 26, 2013.
ENL is committed to respecting the interprovincial agreement on benefits between NS and NL as well ensuring Gender Equity & Diversity opportunities are optimized.
