The conference will focus on routing, permitting, design and construction practices for transmission projects located in sensitive environments. Transmission, environmental and regulatory professionals are expected to attend.
Salisbury and Tunison, who are experts in geotechnical drilling, will address the design, construction and benefits of micropile foundations for transmission lines being constructed in environmentally sensitive and limited-access areas. The successful use of micropile foundations for the Sunrise Powerlink project will serve as an illustrative example. Although the Sunrise project faced a variety of environmental mitigation challenges, the alignment was successfully constructed through a variety of terrain, including National Forest Land and other protected habitats.
