The transmission network upgrade included the construction of 240 km of 240 kV and 140 km of 144 kV transmission lines, 5 new substations and modifications to 12 others. Due to a very tight schedule, the project was carried out in “Fast Track” mode. The stages of engineering, surveying and procurement were therefore performed simultaneously.
CIMA+ provided a team of 55 professionals at the peak of the project, combining expertise in engineering, geomatics, and project management as well as sub-contractor management (geotechnical investigation, surveying). Furthermore, CIMA+ made recommendations to the proposed route to accommodate and minimize the environmental impact on sensitive areas.
