Hydro One Networks Inc. is asking the Ontario Energy Board (OEB) for permission to upgrade one circuit of a 115 kilometre idle 115 kilovolt electricity transmission line. At the same time, it intends to refurbish the adjacent transmission circuit on the same towers. Hydro One Networks Inc. is also asking permission to upgrade associated station facilities from Timmins Transformer Station to Shiningtree Junction. These upgrades will supply IAMGOLD’s Côté Mine facility located approximately 20 km southwest of Gogama, Ontario.
Hydro One Networks Inc. is also asking the OEB to approve the form of agreement it offers to landowners to use their land for routing or construction of the proposed transmission line.
