Mueller Pipeliners launches construction of large underground high voltage project in California

Nov. 8, 2002 — Mueller Pipeliners has started construction of one of the largest ever underground High Voltage Transmission projects for PG&E in California.

The job consists of the installation of approx. 6 miles of 230 Kv cable with a fiber optic temperature monitoring system embedded in the outer sheath of the cable.

Mueller Pipeliners is the General Contractors for this extensive project. Black & Veatch will be performing the engineering for the project. EHV Power is responsible for cable system installation, splicing, testing and system start up. The cable for the project is being provided by SouthWire.

At this point of the project, Mueller Pipeliners has three civil crews working on the vast installation of the duct system. The duct bank includes nine six inch and two four inch conduits. The installation began through a remote vineyard where special care has been taken by crews to insure no damage to the vegetation.

Mueller Pipeliners is working closely with the environmental agencies from both PG&E and the California Public Utility Commission.

The project is moving along on schedule with the first phase being completed in mid-2003.
