Sturgeon Electric, Inc Transmission Lines
J.A. Tiberti Construction Company was called in as a key contractor to ensure the completion of expert welding for Nevada's Southwest Intertie Project (SWIP). This first phase required the welding of coils to massive transmission line towers stretched for 235 miles across the state from Ely, NV to the North Las Vegas Substation. The added coil would reduce resonance damage to the large v-shaped towers during high wind events. Work crews faced varied weather conditions and terrain which presented challenges throughout the project. The SWIP project will enhance the energy sharing efficiencies for NV Energy and connects the two main service areas in Nevada for the first time.
