Winning a contract to construct a 100-km high altitude transmission line in Norway is just the latest in a series of high-profile contracts earned by Edmonton-based Valard Construction. The 5-year project also involves decommissioning 90 km of an existing 300-kilovolt (kV) transmission line, and will require significant use of helicopters for both construction and decommissioning.

“This project is a good fit given Valard’s extensive transmission construction experience as well as with our growth strategy,” says Adam Budzinski, President of Valard Construction.
