Client: Lower Colorado River Authority
The Lower Colorado River Authority (“LCRA”) is a non-profit public utility providing wholesale power to over a million people in Texas. In December 2016, LCRA contracted Irby to construct 33.4 miles of 138kV transmission line from Lampasas to San Saba in central Texas.
The project was executed in consideration of a condensed LCRA schedule and habitat-specific environmental permitting requirements. The Irby scope included steel structures, poles, 22 drilled pier foundations, and a railroad and major highway crossing.
With assistance from fellow Quanta Services subsidiary company North Houston Pole Line (Irby is also a Quanta Services subsidiary (PWR:NYSE)), the project was successfully delivered to LCRA in January 2018.
