GTC Burnt Church-Tradeport 115kV Transmission Line
Scope: 12.2 miles of 115kV transmission line with distribution underbuild
Location: Brunswick, GA
Client: Georgia Transmission Corporation
Irby Construction built a majority of this line along environmentally sensitive terrains of the coastal salt marsh along I-95. To accomplish this, we used an Erickson Air Crane helicopter to haul each pole base into the marsh and special equipment vibrated them into the ground within minutes. Then, the same helicopter aligned and mounted the tops of the poles on each base. We successfully completed this project on schedule using this innovative technique.
