As part of a Competitive Renewable Energy Zone (CREZ) project, Lone Star Transmission is building more than 315 miles of new transmission lines to deliver wind-generated electricity to consumers throughout Texas. The project consists of three 345-kilovolt (kV) transmission line segments aligned through 13counties. Once completed in 2013, it will be the longest CREZ line in Texas.
Kleinfelder’s proactive communication and collaboration with the project owner and its teaming partner has helped mitigate potential issues while keeping the project on budget and schedule. With an eye on safety, the project has remained injury-free. Landowner intrusion is being managed by limiting noise and maintaining a clean environment during field exploration activities.
