Crews from ATCO Electric are expected to wrap up work shortly on upgrades to its Lloydminster substation at the corner of 12 St. and 75 Ave.

ATCO is replacing one of the three 144-kilovolt (kV) circuit breakers onsite and installing a 30-metre telecommunications tower within the substation fence line.

The project and licence were approved by the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) on Jan. 3 and is expected to be completed by June 20, according to the permit details.

ATCO’s application to the AUC for approval to alter and operate the substation was registered on Dec. 19, 2023.

ATCO has 30 days after completing the substation upgrades to file an energization certificate with the AUC to confirm the work has been completed and meets the permit and licence requirements.
