Hy­dro-Sher­brooke to build new line

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke

Hy­dro- Sher­brooke will be putting up an elec­tric line be­tween the sta­tion in Or­ford, the in­dus­trial park and the Chemin Godin sec­tor. This new 25 kV line will cross the pro­jected ex­ten­sion of Port­land Boule­vard but is not con­nected to that pro­ject.

This elec­tric line aims to re­spond to the grow­ing de­mand for elec­tric­ity in the last few years in the In­dus­triel Boule­vard sec­tor. The new above-ground struc­ture will serve around 550 clients and make the elec­tric grid more se­cure, es­pe­cially dur­ing the win­ter. New en­ter­prises that lo­cate to the ex­tended in­dus­trial park will also get power from this line.

The work, val­ued at $700,000, be­gins this week and will con­tinue un­til mid-De­cem­ber. The new line will leave the Or­ford sta­tion and fol­low In­dus­triel Blvd un­til Wil­fred-Beaucage Street. Then it will pass be­hind the Ser­res St. Elie and pass over the fu­ture ex­ten­sion of Port­land Boule­vard. Af­ter go­ing down a fu­ture street in the in­dus­trial park, the elec­tric line will cross In­dus­triel Blvd. at Saint-Jac­ques Street, not far from the au­toroute 10/55.
