Meeting marine, terrestrial, socio-economic, and regulatory needs and helping the client with Indigenous and fisher's consultation
A growing community with increasing energy needs. An existing transmission system between two provinces—with both land and sea components. To install and operate two new high-voltage submarine cables between New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island, Maritime Electric Company needed a few extra hands and an environmental impact assessment (EIA).
Our team, with support from Maritime Electric and PEI Energy Corporation, led the development of the EIAs, including a federal environmental review. We also provided marine and terrestrial field studies, archaeological assessments, provincial and federal permitting, marine and terrestrial environmental protection plans, environmental monitoring for all phases of construction. In addition, we helped support our client’s consultation efforts with regulators, the public, commercial fishers, and local Indigenous groups.
The new alternating current transmission system includes marine components (two submarine cables in the Northumberland Strait) and land-based components: cable landfall sites, a new substation, a new riser station, and overhead transmission lines to connect the new station to an existing substation.
