Transmission Projects - Oakville to Alliance 230kV Transmission Line Project

Project Description

Construction starts March 1 on the Oakville-Alliance transmission project, the third part of a multi-million dollar program to enhance the reliability of service to Plaquemines Parish customers and meet the needs of a growing economy.

The overall program involves a series of projects to build a 230 kV transmission path between the Peters Road substation in Jefferson Parish and the Alliance substation. The first project involved expanding the Peters Road substation to supply the new 230 kV line. The second project involved rebuilding the Oakville substation to serve as a new 230/14kV distribution substation and constructing a new 230 kV transmission line between the Peters Road and Oakville substations.

Now underway is the third project, which involves construction of a 10.5-mile 230 kV transmission line between the Oakville substation, which is off Walker Road in Belle Chasse, and the Alliance substation, located west of Louisiana Highway 23 near the Phillips 66 refinery. Construction is expected to be complete between mid-December 2017 and February 2018.
