Project info

Located in the Comox Valley area, the Buckley Bay Substation was built to help offset the heavy electricity loads on nearby substations in Courtenay, Comox, and Qualicum Beach, while increasing safer power capacity for the local community. 

Our team delivered all civil installation, electrical construction, and power and communications (P&C) installation for the new 138kV – 25kV substation. The extreme winter conditions added a challenge to the project, however, we were able to overcome it through effective communication between our project team and the other trades on-site.
