BC Hydro issued a tender in December 2012 for the substation’s electrical and civil work.

The site preparation and grading had already been awarded to Upland Excavating. BC Hydro has cancelled the electrical and civil tender and intends to reissue a new competitive bid in the near future.

The site preparation work planned last fall has been delayed due to wet site conditions. This site work is now starting and will be complete this year.

The substation in-service date has been pushed back to early fall 2014. As a result, given the site work delay BC Hydro has decided to retender the work.

The civil and electrical work is anticipated to be awarded later this year and the work commence in the fall. This will follow the site work completion and having the two transformer foundations in place.
